This year my birthday fell on a Sunday. So I requested a trip to an arboretum. Sometimes a leafy autumnal walk with your gang followed by a trip to the pub is all you need. Plus it was a good opportunity to get wrapped up in my new wooly hat and scarf. It’s the little things people.
While I love a beer garden in summer, the pub really comes into its own for me in Autumn. Cosy fires, cosseting interiors, great food and drink all conspire to give me that warm glow, especially if you’ve earned it with a bracing country walk.
