It’s the end of September, and it has felt like Autumn around here for the last week. There’s something about the long, cold nights that appeals to me; the hearty warming dinnners, hot soup for dinner, stepping on crunchy leaves, sneaky drinks in old-man pubs, decent series on the TV and lots of time for reading books. For my wardrobe, this means a happy return to black opaque tights, ankle boots, skinny jeans, cuddly cardigans and Breton-striped tshirts.
I have loads planned for October, and I’m really looking forward what the month has in store for me.
Lindy Hop: The Ginger and I signed up for a seven week swing dancing class; and after one class, I can say that I am going to really love learning this class. I’m not a good dancer but the class is so much fun.
Horse Riding: I bought a voucher for a horse-riding lesson at the beginning of the summer but never used it. I’ll finally get around to using it this month with my friend Laura. I’ve only ever been on a horse once so I’m a little bit nervous about this one.
Family: My younger sister is coming to Cork for Cork Jazz Week and Halloween, and my parents and the Ginger’s parents are finally getting to meet each other as well. I also need to practice making a birthday cake for my dad as he is turning 60 in the beginning of November, so I need to find a special cake for him.
Do you have any plans for October?
