Oh September, your Autumnal-ness has been much appreciated! I was not blessed with a summer body, I have one of those lumpy pear-shaped bodies that appreciates skinny jeans and a large jumper – I bloody love this dismal weather!
As I mentioned in Monday’s blog, I have become a social hermit, which while unfortunately contributing to an early hunchback has allowed for a lot of reading time.
