Month in the Life: Sam Osborne September

Already this month we’ve heard from Monika ForsbergJennifer Orkin LewisMegan K Ball Linda Tieu so now I thought I’d share my September with you!

September was a really fun month with lots going on! I started the month with a very special day celebrating a Christening and a 100th birthday in one day and by the end of the month another big celebration was on my mind with my Christmas shop getting ready for the busy season! There were a fun trips out to a wallpaper factory, the London Design Festival and a local food festival that were full of inspiration. And thankfully the weather was kind – I was happy to still be wearing my flip flops at the end of the month!
