I'm joining in silverpebble's 'splash of colour' this season. I think it's a great idea and I've been really noticing the wonderful hues that autumn has to offer.
I was driving along the road the other day when I spied this most beautiful of trees, the light illuminating its leaves so prettily. Of course, by the time I'd parked the car, the wind had got up!
At the weekend I saw this huge cloud, framed by the trees, which reminded me of a snow-capped mountain, not quite as grand as Everest but somewhere perhaps like Kilimanjaro.
And, of course, last night. Such a lot of fun, it was all over too soon but the plastic pumpkins are still filled with sweeties. Well, maybe I have pinched one or two - oops! I love the way the children really get into the whole thing and when we met up with some school friends and trawled the streets en masse, it was funny to take a step back and watch them in action. It's not quite so endearing seeing a great group, though, and I wondered how many more years they would get before they resemble the intimidating youths that you dread coming onto your own doorstep.
I had a real hassle of a day today. Getting out of the car on the way back from doing the school run this morning, I noticed the tax disc had expired last night. With hubby on a plane to Singapore and therefore incommunicado (the whereabouts of all insurance documentation a state secret it would appear), I was sent into a panic like no other. It did get sorted eventually, so we are once more upstanding citizens of this great nation, but it took the best part of the day and any plans for crafting went right out of the window.
Feeling stressed and having only a short time before the school run beckoned once again, I sat down for a little knitting session to calm down. Bad idea! Within moments, I had made a mistake and, because I haven't yet worked out how to 'unknit', I had to unravel a few rows before inserting a smaller needle and re-knitting. This I have now done several times and it crossed my mind perhaps there may be a need for a new knitting group. 'Unravelry'. What are the chances of it taking off, I wonder?!
Have a lovely week x
