Etsy List: Spring forward, Fall back

'Spring forward, Fall back' Etsy List curated by H is for HomeThe clocks go back (or is it forwards?) on the 26th of October this year – it always happens on the last Sunday of October. We’ll go from British Summer Time (BST) or ‘daylight saving time’ back to Greenwich Mean Time (GMT) at 1am.

For ages I couldn’t get to grips with this bi-annual time change – it’s not practiced in Trinidad where I grew up. The sudden change to dark evenings still affects me hugely even though I’ve been back living in the UK for over 25 years. But I take the rough with the smooth; the long, bright summer evenings almost make up for it!

I now mentally recite the mnemonic, “spring forward, fall back”, to remember which way to turn the hands on my watch & clocks around the house.

Etsy List: If you go down to the woods today…

'If you go down to the woods today' Etsy List by H is for HomeWe love walking Fudge in the woods near our house – it takes on such a magical quality in the autumn.

The colour; the earthy smell; the sound of crisp, dry leaves underfoot; squirrels darting here & there up trunks and between branches; mushrooms poking up through the leaf litter.

Yesterday, I (Adelle) was lucky to get a long look at two startled deer leaping away – it was the first time I’d seen deer in over a year. Justin boasts of sightings at least once a week!

Autumn colour makes it the most beautiful season of them all. You just can’t help wanting to bring some of it indoors – making displays of golden leaves, seed heads, gourds, berries, acorns and conkers.
