  2. Congratulations on your successful move, it looks great. This is a fun way to celebrate and a nice thought on your part. Will have to have a good think about this as, to be honest, I'm a bit fed up with apple at the moment!

  20. Hi Kate
    I'm sitting here in NZ reading your wonderful blog while keeping one eye watching Wales currently winning over Ireland, I think it's going to go the way of Wales... Your Autumn challenge sounds like fun! We are currently heading towards summer, but I'm sure I can dig out some Autumnal-feeling goodies. Looking forward to seeing the other Autumn goodies!
