Autummer? Sumtumn?

What do you call it when two seasons come together? Does it fall under the 'Indian summer' category that everyone mysteriously talks about each September? The last couple of weeks have been marvellous, and we're due more this week. Some nights have been as balmy as an Italian night in August - Southbank has been heaving each night with people enjoying the warm extension to their Autumnal evening. All out of step with the month of October, but heck - who's complaining?

We went to my in-laws last week to celebrate Mr M Senior's birthday with a scorching BBQ and I made a dogs dinner of a birthday cake...
...hard to believe I've been watching the Great British Bake Off...
...but it did taste mighty fine. Note to oneself - in silly humidity, cream doesn't take quite so long to whip.
