Autumn has definitely arrived here in the last few days. It is windy and cold but still beautiful in its own right.
The wind has blown the leaves from the trees and the gorgeous colours of autumn are now more under foot than hanging above our heads. Although the woods are so close to us (this picture is taken from the back garden) the kids still prefer the beach,
Indoors the heating is often on and the smell of apple pie and soup is common. The kids have been very happy playing together, the three of them. Often quite funny games that I enjoy over hearing. Benny and Rebe have played an elaborate game of goodies and baddies for two days now and their 'people' are felt tip pens. It does make me giggle!
Last week was so lovely, I went away with Garry (who is him) to his brother's wedding in Co Kildare. We went for 2 nights and the kids stayed with their dad. It was the longest I have been away from them, but I just allowed myself to be completely me and immerse myself in the experience instead of feeling worried or guilty about it. I wore the dress that I had made and we drank and danced and celebrated until the wee hours of the morning. It was a very special and lovely time and has left me with a very warm glow :-)
Hope autumn is being good to you too x
