But we do like to get out and enjoy Autumn too, so today we togged up, grabbed the adored grandparents and headed up to our favourite woodland.
So the year has turned again. Everything is glorious colour; golden, copper, saffron, lime, burnt umber, sienna, scarlet and crimson, all against the blackness of stem and trunk.
We do this sort of thing all the time but having mum and dad with us today brought back so many memories. And here I am now, playing out my own happy childhood again with our little boys. Thank you, thank you mum and dad.
So there was lots of swinging, plenty of kicking and throwing of leaves and running through the trees.
