Yesterday was perfect autumn walking weather. We didn't venture far, just to one of our city's parks.
First off we feed the ducks.
Then we strolled by the river taking in the beauty of the trees as they start to display their autumn colours.
To get the children a bit more active I set them races to do from this list . T started to get a bit self conscious when it came to the 'run with your hands above your head' so it was time for me to take part too which made him laugh.
My inner child really enjoyed doing that one and the pretending to be an aeroplane was good fun too.
And by the time we got to 'run whilst singing' my mum had joined in as well and we all sang Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer. Not sure why but that was the first song that popped into my head that I knew we all knew!
Mum found a lost golf ball, one must have gone astray from someones pitch and putt game, just before we reached the end of our walk so we had a couple of games of hunt in the ball in amongst the fallen leaves before we left.
Before I go I just wanted to share a recipe I found online which I cooked last Monday. I wish I had taken a photo as it actually looked like it was supposed too!
It's for lightly spiced cottage pie. The recipe uses pumpkin for the topping but I used sweet potato and cut down the curry powder and cumin by half.
There wasn't a smidge left afterwards and as she was eating it S said that she wished she could eat it for breakfast, lunch and tea all week as it was so delicious. Perfect autumn fare.
