What I Love About Autumn - My top 5



Oh god how I love Autumn. Apart from the dark nights coming earlier and when it gets really windy, it's really great.  There are many reasons that I could write down that makes me glad it's here but here is my top 5 reasons why I love the Autumn.

1. The Great New Seasons On The Box

Well I don't think I watch too much TV, but there does seem to be some great shows that start or make a return in the Autumn. I never miss Arrow, Sons, Once upon a time and Revenge, but there is some good new shows too. Selfie and The Flash to name a few. I love snuggling up in my PJ's and a cup of tea and binge watching these. (I love the fact we have Netflix and Amazon too).







2. Wrapping Up In Lush Comfy Clothes

As the nights go a bit colder, we start wrapping up in big jumpers, cardigans and boots. It gives us a chance to bring out the old favourites and also invest in some new key pieces. I always go and have a mooch around the local charity shops to find a bargain or two as budgets for this can be a bit restrictive. But they are the best!! The number of tops etc that I have found have been amazing and at great prices too. 

New season next £35



3. When The Leaves Turn Golden

 One of the things I love is going for a walk with Juno amongst the fallen leaves and make that scrunching sound. We go picking for conkers, and we take them home to keep the house 'free from spiders' (doesn't work). 


4. My Local Fireworks And Carnival

Where I live in my little town of Burnham On Sea, every November we have a fireworks display and a carnival. It has always been a tradition of mine to make sure me and my family go, through time with different people. But it has always been great. The fireworks display is based on the seafront so overlooks the sea, last year we lived on the seafront so didn't have to leave home to watch it. This year will be even special because Juno is old enough to see it and understands that it's fireworks. The Carnival, is on the Monday and goes through the high street. Overall it's a great weekend, and a tradition I intend to keep up as long as I can. I love the fact I end up being silly and completely weird when they are on. Let's just see what happens this year. (Will let you know)




5. It's Nearly Christmas!!!

Of course the Christmas bug has well and truly hit everyone by now, especially after Halloween ends. The thing for me is trying to find the Christmas bargains and presents. I will be getting Jerome in a Christmas jumper whether he likes it or not.

What is your favourite thing about Autumn?

Heinz Tomato Ketchup 50% Less Sugar

,


Hey, long time no speak
Change of jobs, family life and Juno made it time for me to take a back seat in my blogging for a while. Will chat about that later, but I am here to tell you about Heinz's new Tomato Ketchup with 50% less sugars.

If you are like me, I am constantly trying to find products with less sugar in for me and my family to try and eat a bit more healthily. Trying to get Juno to eat dinner is a challenge without having sauce, so finding Heinz 50% less sugar tomato ketchup is brilliant.

Heinz have replaced their sugar with sweeteners made from natural sources (so none of those artificial ones) Some of it has been replaced by a plant called Stevia which the extract of which has 300 times the sweetness of sugar and has been used for hundreds of years.

We sat down last night to home-made fish pie, broccoli carrots and sweetcorn, Juno always has sauce on the side. She tried some and I asked her what she thought of it and the words were saucy. Me and Jerome both thought it tastes like ketchup, and couldn't tell the difference. So it would be a great alternative that the whole family could enjoy without missing out on all the original taste.

Check it out in stores now, priced at £2.00 for a 500ml bottle its great value for money. Also check out the advert you'll be seeing alot more of too.
