You're right, the days are getting shorter, but that's no reason to feel down! For some of us here, it's the beginning of a magical time of year and here’s why we hope you’ll agree:1. LET’S TAKE THIS INDOORS…
Now that it’s a bit crisper outside and BBQs are no longer an option (be honest, who’s really going to miss the occasional burnt-on-the-outside-raw-on-the-inside chicken surprise?), friends tend to turn their talents to any old excuse for a house party.Any chance for a little dress-up is a tick in our books, there are a ton of themes to call on for a decent spot of fancy dress, plus everyone’s got a friend called Dave who they secretly can’t wait to see dressed as Pamela Anderson. 2.

However, a freakishly hot day in October is a welcome visit from a long lost friend that finds us considering lunch breaks in the park and opening the office window despite the radiators still being on. Incidentally, the term ‘Indian Summer’ doesn’t actually have anything to do with India itself as a country. There are theories on it being about when Native Americans would hunt late in the year, out of season, whereas the word ‘indian’ was used in distant history simply to describe something unusual or alien.4.

Rather than admit to being at the mercy of the corporate brands, you can’t help but notice when the high street coffee shops start pushing out the pumpkin spiced lattes - it means pumpkin pie is just around the corner as is… HALLOWEEN! Carving is an art-form and now you can get the practice in before the big night, in all its frightfest glory!
