Taking My Leaf From Knitting Club

I thought I'd play hookey from knitting club and have a rustle in the leaves and clear my head , I still having got over my knitting rage ( I'm struggling with my knitting ) . I'm sure when I return to knitting club I'll have my new knitting needles , I've never been overly crafty but I'm jolly well having a go. Soon it will be half term ( big cheers , lets off fireworks and drinks wine )

My walk home from school took me to the nature reserve then into the woods , I want to say deep dark woods but they were glowing with leaves of fire. Up the leaf strewn steps , to the patchwork carpet of gold , copper , yellow orange Ooooh the colours.

Not your usual walk but I not like the ordinary , I'll go out of my way to add a jingle and a jangle to my day. I live near the countryside and you'll see how much I love the outdoors from my Instagram.

After a hearty walk and knowing my son would be heading off to rugby training then I thought a good meal was in order , luckily Aldi had sent me some vouchers to try some of their range. I decided that tonight we would try their Beef Wellington priced at £9.99 , neither myself or my son are ones for pastry but this Beef Wellington pastry was another matter.

An empty plate says it all really doesn't it now?!

I have to say the Beef Wellington isn't one of those frozen meals you think oh no on it is geuinally worth the £9.99 and the actually beef doesn't taste cheap ether it is literally melt in the mouth.

Disclosure~ Nature provided the spectacular Autumn, Aldi kindly provided me with some vouchers to try some of their range .


  1. I wish Aldi would send me some vouchers!! Did you check out the You tube very pink knits tutorials - or loads of the same elk? Helped me learn to crochet - ish....

  2. Ah- bless Mother nature for gifting you the autumn! Lovely colours in your shots there and I too enjoy adding some jingle jangle to my day! I enjoyed your post and nice blog refresh BTW!! x

  3. Sometimes I get totally naffed off with my knitting and down go the needles. A nice autumnal walk sounds just the thing to 'unravel' knitty stress lol X

  4. I love beef wellington and that isn't a bad price - its double that in tesco

  5. I wish I lived in the countryside! Gorgeous pics! And that beef wellington looks divine!
