September signals the start of a new chapter in the year, ‘September’ just doesn’t sound very summery to me, so I tend to go straight into autumn mode.
September signals the countdown to Christmas. Yes I know we’ve got bonfire night and some other events to get through first, but all I keep seeing is Christmas on the horizon.
I can sense the fast approaching change in the UK clocks, darker mornings and darker evenings – it’s so close.
September usually triggers my desire for an autumn getaway – to catch a bit of bliss before the winter sets in.
My thoughts also turn to the nearing new year, and any ‘new year’ plans I want to jumpstart in preparation, why wait until January when you can get the ball rolling now?
Far better to enter the new year with a feeling of plans in place and wheels in motion, right?
Lets get back to September and welcome our beloved autumn once again, it’s crispy golden leaves fluttering down to make a seasonal carpet below.
We’re in for one last offering of fabulous colour before the darkness of winter sets in, golds reds, orange and yellows, all shimmering in the sunlight creating that autumnal amber glow.
For the students out there, September (in the UK at least) kick starts the beginning of a new academic year, a new course, the next step in their paths to success.
September definitely feels like a time for new beginnings as we begin to say goodbye to the summer. (In the UK we may already have said those goodbyes back in June/July – just saying).
The mornings begin to feel fresher and the winter clothing ranges sit patiently on the racks of popular high street stores, a not so subtle reminder of what is soon to come.
Wardrobes, stocked with a few new jumpers, boots and winter warmers also adds to the feeling of a new turn.
Let’s offer a warm welcome to September.
Do you remember………(sing along now)
