October to-do list

1 Do something good with a pumpkin. This delicious vegetable is in season, so it’s a perfect time to turn it into a soup, a pie or even some pancakes. Alternatively, you could have great fun carving one, whilst adding a little bit of Halloween to your home.

2 Plan a day trip. We recently visited St Andrews and Glasgow. I forgot just how much fun it is to pack up the car and go away for the day.

3 Embrace blackberries. These beautiful purple little fruits are everywhere at the moment and are really delicious. Keep your eyes peeled for my recipe for skinny blackberry cheesecakes, coming up soon.

4 Revisit your five-year-old self and go and crunch some leaves. One of the best things about this time of year is putting on a pair of boots and positively stamping on every crunchy leaf you see.

5 Pay a visit to Juniper on Princes Street. This stylish bar has a great selection of cocktails and an even better playlist that will have you reaching for your dancing shoes.

    Crunching leaves is very exciting. And it will indeed be fantastic once you can do all of the things on my lists. Have a great weekend!
