Rose’s Top 5 Choices For November

Autumn​ ​has​ ​settled​ ​in​ ​nicely.​ ​This​ ​is​ ​my​ ​favourite​ ​time​ ​of​ ​the​ ​year.​ ​It​ ​feels​ ​like​ ​the​ ​slower season,​ ​where​ ​happy​ ​memories​ ​of​ ​our​ ​bustling​ ​Summer​ ​can​ ​be​ ​cradled​ ​along​ ​with​ ​a​ ​hot​ ​cup of​ ​coffee.

Autumn​ ​is​ ​when​ ​the​ ​anticipation​ ​for​ ​things​ ​to​ ​come​ ​begins​ ​to​ ​bubble.​ ​Carving​ ​Pumpkins, Pulling​ ​on​ ​warm​ ​boots.​ ​Watching​ ​Fireworks.​ ​November​ ​things.

Here​ ​are​ ​some​ ​of​ ​the​ ​November​ ​things​ ​happening​ i​n​ ​Peterborough…
