My family - 24/5/09

Welcome to my blog!

I've started this blog as a record of my family life more than anything else. Time passes so quickly and there are things you think you will never forget but somehow you do....
I am Natalie, married to David since 14th May 2005. We have two gorgeous children Lyra (born 28/Jan/07) & Logan (born 20/Mar/09) and a crazy cat called Cassie. Life is hectic but good!

Autumn days

Autumn is probably my favourite season. The crisp morning air that promises frost, crunchy leaves in glorious colours and the ripening fruit in the trees and hedgerows make me want to spend most of the time outdoors. Just look at that blue sky!


If only this were possible! Of course the other side of Autumn is the rain and the start-of-school-year colds. At the moment I'm feeling slightly sorry for myself; partly because I have a cold but also because on a family walk over the weekend I realised that this year I won't be able to climb any trees in the annual quest for apples. I may have been slightly petulent about this realisation but we still had a lovely time. Lyra climbed the trees to reach the sadly few apples growing within reach;

She has a very sensible helmet on because she rode her bike, which she's a natural at after two weeks as a cyclist;

And we had lots of fun hunting for conkers in the grass, much to Logan's excitement and pleasure when he found several. Each time he spotted one his face lit up and he was very happy to have them photographed;

So all in all the season is off to a good start. I've started making Christmas presents because making gifts takes much more time than buying them but will wait to share any of them until the new year!
