This is what most of my camera roll consists of lately: leaves and sky. Sometimes, if i'm feeling really ADVENTUROUS, it will be leaves and feet. The Mr joked last night that i'd never ever had a picture on my blog with my feet and the sky. He's right you KNOW. Why have i missed such an INGENIOUS opportunity?! Once we realised said photo would involve me rolling around on my back with my feet up in the air and a camera in public we sort of went off the idea. Especially given the time of year and all. I can't help myself where out and about is concerned. Everywhere is looking so flipping pretty this year. Each time we slide into another season i am forever adamant that it is more BEAUTIFUL, more lovely and more enjoyable than it was this time last year. Does anyone else feel that way? I'm never sure if actually i just forget quite how wonderful it is until it comes around again.
I am always in AWE of how much the light changes too. I feel as if my days off are spent as outside as i can be for as long as i can be too. Just because i know how little daylight there is now and how my days are only going to get shorter and shorter. We have been so LUCKY with the weather and really only had the odd hazy, drizzly day. It has to be a really awful day to stop my trailing those two wheels outdoors - it's my very favourite thing to do. It clears my head, gives me time to think and gives my legs the exercise without me having to use too much brain power. Over the past week or so i have also SPOTTED my fair share of squirrels, baby rabbits and the odd heron alongside the river. It seems taking those two wheels out first thing has its benefits!
I'm not ALONE when i tell you that i love being cosy. Whilst we can all also admit to loving bare legs, feeling the wind in our hair and slipping flip flops onto your feet for the first time; there is equally also nothing like the feeling of the FIRST time sleeping back in proper pyjamas complete with hot water bottle and the sweet little weight of a blanket across your legs. When i haven't been outdoor lately, i have been PADDING about our little somewhere being cosy and getting accustomed to all my very favourite knitted layers from last year - with just a couple of new additions. I have made it a ritual that any days off i have now, i start them with a big mug of tea in bed. Funnily enough its a ritual that i am having no problems becoming accustomed to! I have been adding BITS and BOBS to my Autumn and Winter mood boards too. I am particularly enjoying putting together the Winter one: Lots of cream cable knits, metallic touches and messy hair. Which is your favourite?
