Where did summer go? It passed by so quickly. The evenings are drawing in and there is a hint of autumn in the air. Summer has been wonderful, but the time has come to hang up the shorts and sandals for another year and to embrace everything that autumn has to bring.
Autumn is beautiful, with its colours and textures, the golden leaves that crunch underfoot and the gentle breeze that gently delivers them there.
The shops are filling with Halloween decorations and, dare I say it? Christmas gifts and cards.
Autumn is full of magic, three months of pure joy, apple bobbing, pumpkin carving, firework displays and, dare I say it again? Christmas shopping.
Overstone House opens in October and we are already preparing for a hive of autumnal creative activity to begin. As our preparations take shape, our minds are cast back to years gone by, Halloween parties, the children watching fireworks in awe. This will be our first autumn in our new home, sharing it with new friends. There has been a frenzy of reminiscence and an air of sheer excitement at what this season has in store for both team members and residents. Autumn is a very special season.
We have always enjoyed it and this year looks set to be the best yet.
