Etsy List: Spring forward, Fall back

'Etsy List' blog post banner

'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.

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.

Out & about… Autumn

Wednesday, December 2nd, 2009

It’s been a long time since our last Out & about post – we even missed the whole of summer!

Flower-filled fields feel a distant memory…

…the flowers gave way to autumn leaves…

…mushrooms…

…and berries.


For the first couple of weeks of autumn we had the best of both worlds – sunshine as well as amazing seasonal colour.

We were seeing butterflies until quite late in the year…

…but there was no doubting that summer was over, as the winter-visiting geese were beginning to arrive.

Even the autumn sunshine is now a thing of the past – it seems to have been raining non-stop for almost a month. But now we’re into December, this rain will hopefully turn to snow which will mean a magical white Christmas!
