๐ŸŒฟ๐ŸงกHello September ๐Ÿงก๐ŸŒฟ

๐ŸŒฟ๐Ÿงก๐ŸŒฟThe Summer months have gone by so quickly I hardly had time to think. August seems a distant memory... It suddenly warmed up when I was hoping for more Autumnal days and cooler temps... ๐ŸŒž
So I thought I better do another catch up post... 
We had an abundance of Apples & blackberries ๐ŸŒฟ❤️๐ŸŒฟI made a Summer sponge flan and crumbles... 

๐ŸŒฟ๐ŸŒž๐ŸŒฟ๐ŸŒง️๐ŸŒค️๐ŸŒฅ️We had a bit of a soggy August to be honest. But between showers we've visited some local places in Devon like Totnes, Dartington & Ashburton. And long walks on the Moorland. 
๐ŸŒฟ๐ŸŒž๐ŸŒฟ Well, we did enjoy some lovely trips until our car failed the m.o.t so we've had it in the garage being fixed and costing a small fortune! Hopefully, we get it back by Friday this week. 
๐ŸŒฟ๐ŸŒž๐ŸŒฟ❤️My beautiful, bright Sophs got her gcse's results during August, she did amazingly well... We are all so proud of her๐Ÿ˜Š❤️But she's already working at an accountancy firm near the city on her apprenticeship, so she's already settled into life there and college once a week. 
My poor dad's been back in Guys hospital London having radiotherapy but caught Covid while there the week before and is feeling very weak ๐Ÿ˜”❤️ so emotionally I've felt so exhausted with worry and guilt not being able to see him. 
But I'm hoping to spend a long weekend soon. We talk twice a day ❤️ but it's not the same.  One of the reasons I didn't feel good about August as it felt a tough month.  Life sure is an emotional roller-coaster at times! 
๐ŸŒฟ๐ŸŒž๐ŸŒฟBut I do try and find the little joys... However big or small... Loved the scarecrow competition at Otter's nursery. Sure cheered my soul ๐Ÿ’•
๐ŸŒฟ๐Ÿ’–๐ŸŒฟI have to admit I long for Autumnal days... And seeing the leaves change and blackberries in the hedgerows. My favourite time of year. But today it still feels like Summer! And the butterflies are enjoying the last blooms on the hill top garden๐Ÿฆ‹
