Oh autumn, there is so much to love about you.

Conkers and pine cones to collect, fresh crisp air filling my lungs, leaves crackling under my boots, the trees wearing their best colours. IThere's a scent, a feeling in the air that can only be described as 'autumnal' - full of frost and moonlight, butternut squash and bonfire smoke, mist and damp. Stags with magnificent antlers. Knitted scarves and cardigans. Warm hearty stews to savour as the evenings darken, then hot chocolate and marshmallows at night. Pumpkins, toffee apples, witches and wizards, fireworks. Spelling my name with sparklers. Icy fingers, rosy cheeks, leaves drifting down, red, burgundy, brown, gold.

I will stop going on about autumn eventually, promise. But seeing as the weather's back to its normal state I thought I'd let myself get all excited. And brr! - isn't it cold today! I'm typing this in gloves because my hands are freezing!

Anyway, I've created an autumnal playlist (above), full of songs I've loved during autumns past. Have a listen!
