Grace: she loves this weather - apparently it's 'perfect for reading, snuggling and playing schools'
Tom: learning to play, I think Grace was only telling him the rules when it suited her!

Last week I had a selection of images of Gracie and Tom but I simply didn't have the energy to even put a blog post together. We have been enjoying our last few weeks of autumn, outdoors and in the golden sunlight.  The woody smell of neighbours fire's fills the air at dusk and our afternoon walks have started to dissipate as the darkness sets in not long after 5pm.

Today is the first day of Winter, and what a way to show it's presence. Here is is raining, dark and cool, the mood in the house is sombre and slow. Old board games are pulled out and enjoyed.

Tom: This photo just feels so eerily nostalgic to me...
Grace: standing in the cold May wind, her hair still highlighted from the summer past

This week my thoughts have included:

* How am I ever going to finish this Leadership course? The content is airy-fairy, not the art and science like I am used to.
* Can't school work be done in school time? I want to afternoons to be free from deadlines, reading lists and handwriting

* Does my hips look big in this? Planning wedding dress appointments, sampling menu's and laying down deposits on trestle tables and bentwood chairs

* Why can't Autumn linger for a little while longer? The Winter wind got to my bones this weekend..
