{Autumn Bucket List} Welly Walks & Hot Chocolate

Wednesday, 30 October 2013


It has been perfect Autumn weather for enjoying a welly walk. Though unseasonably mild, we've seen our fair share of showers and blustery days this October and so we pulled on our wellies and took a walk to Nanny & Grampy's house along the muddy lane through the wet leaves.


It was fun to spot the wildlife on the way, and we had a look to see if Mr Squirrel was watching us from his tree. The kids love kicking through the leaves and talking about the different colours, they're really excited for Halloween tomorrow and carving their pumpkins (that'll be another tick off of our Autumn Bucket List).

The best thing about a welly walk in the brisk Autumn air is coming home to a big mug of hot chocolate and marshmallows (or snowman soup as it is known as a bit closer to Christmas!). It's one of my favourite treats to enjoy in the colder months.

I like mine made with warm milk and a spoon made of real chocolate, slowly stirred in and melted.
Then I like to add a generous splodge of squirty cream and top it off with some marshmallows and a sprinkle of cocoa powder.

How do you drink yours?

  1. I'm one of those odd bods who's not really a fan of hot chocolate. I DO love a hot chai though which is nice served with a slab of cake! Love the look of your local walk :)

  7. You can't bet a walk on a mild autumn day to blow away the cobwebs, and a perfect opportunity for some leaf kicking and puddle splashing too. I love the idea of Snowman Soup and I think your recipe is perfect. Thanks for linking up and sharing with Country Kids.
