I am sat here tucked up in the warm and cosy whilst the rain and wind does its thing outside. The weather couldn't be more different from that first week we had on the Isle of Wight, which was but a few weeks ago.
We are definitely into autumn ... the temperatures have dropped, as have plenty of leaves in the garden ... the grass is carpeted with red and gold, the heating has been on and the candles have been lit.
After a full on week back at work for Martin, we are looking forward to a very quiet weekend holed up at home, with not much on the cards at all ... we might even curl up with in front of the fire and watch a film on Sunday afternoon, but for now ... here is what's been happening over here so far for October ...
|Day 2 - Today was glorious and we had the best pizzas ever overlooking the sea at The Driftwood Beach Bar in Sandown ... it was just bliss.
|Day 3 - Another lovely lunch spot ... this time in Shanklin Old Village
|Day 4 - After a couple of lazy days we had a good walk today, out across the salt marshes at the Newtown Nature Reserve, which definitely blew the cobwebs away.
