You know that feeling - the kids are back at school after the Summer hols, the sun cream and flip flops are packed away for another year, and you finally swap the Summer duvet for the Winter one.
It must be Autumn.
But it's not all cold mornings and dark evenings.
October is the perfect time to visit Cornwall, settle down for a week of storm watching with some of your favourite people, and unwind before the craziness of Christmas begins.
If this sounds tempting, we've got the perfect place to stay.
Plus there are plenty of events and activities to enjoy during your holiday.
North Cornwall Book Festival
"Everyone has at least one good book in them, but it doesn't do any good until you pry it out." Jodi Picoult
This quote Picoult inspires many of us to consider putting pen to paper (or finger to keyboard) to create our own masterpiece....
If you're ready to release your inner JK Rowling, then the North Cornwall Book Festival is a must-see.
There are practical workshops, talks from successful authors, live music and even drawing classes. There are also sessions for younger aspiring writers, designed for for 8-11 year-olds and teens.
Visit Poldark landmarks
BBC's hugely successful series starring Aidan Turner (Ross), Eleanor Tomlinson (Demelza) and Luke Norris (Dr Enys) has attracted fans to the county.
Head to Holywell Bay, Charlestown, Padstow and Porthcurno to experience the drama and beauty of the programme.
Falmouth Oyster Festival
This annual event celebrates all things maritime in Cornwall's largest port, Falmouth.
Of course you'll have plenty of opportunity to try some of the region's delicious fresh seafood, but with four days of feasting, cooking demonstrations, live music and craft stalls, this fab event isn't just for oyster-lovers.
Visit the home of Doc Martin
October is a great time to visit the area in North Cornwall, when the Summer crowds have gone, so you can see "Port Wenn", find Doctor Ellingham's surgery and peek inside St Nonna's Church.
