Autumn

The Autumn has to be my favourite time of year.  The colours are absolutely beautiful.  I love all the reds, oranges, purples and brown.  I love that I can start wrapping up a little bit, it is Pumpkin Spice Latte season (I had my first yesterday along with a Walnut, Apple and Cinnamon muffin), and my birthday is in September also.

The only gripe I have with Autumn is that it leads to Winter and I hate Winter.  Lets hope that we have a really long Autumn which leads straight into Spring (my second favourite season of the year).

Happy Fall from Pickle Land

One of the Saturdays I ended up going to my local hospital as AJ had a cricket ball smashed in his face and as a precaut…

As both of my parents had died I wasn't looking forward to my wedding day without them.  I never could imagine actually getting married at all.  I thought I would be on my own forever.  AJ came into my life after being on my own for a long time.  I had created a life for myself that I was fairly happy with but I knew that I was lonely and wanted to share my life with someone special.

AJ and I met on a blind(ish) date.  We both worked for the local authority at the time but in different departments on different floors. A mutual friend of ours played match maker and suggested to AJ that we should meet up and see how we would get along.  AJ was brave and e-mailed me who to him was a total stranger.  I knew who he was but w…
