Monday was a wonderfully cold and frosty but sunny day. We had a hard frost and the leaves on the trees were simply throwing themselves to the ground. Almost like some kind of leaf snow at times. Lots of crackly noises too.
|Such rich autumn colours edged with frost. Gorgeous.|
|I really like this snakey park bench.|
|A carpet of leaves just begging to kicked and foraged in...|
The grass in the bottom end of the park was smothered in a sumptuous golden carpet of fallen leaves. So we just had to spend ages kicking it about and foraging for late conkers.
|What a result. A truly MASSIVE conker!|
|Clump of mushrooms or fairy village? I vote for the latter!|
|Lovely, leafy messiness|
|Waiting for the Pooh sticks to appear.|
Today we went to see Despicable Me. We always go to see a film in the hols and sometimes the offerings are a bit hit and miss. Fell asleep during the Cats and Dogs movie so slim was the plot and interest. Today's choice was really good though. If you haven't seen it, you should, it's very funny and a bit moving too at times. I love the minions and want one as a pet.
Older girlie wants to go and see the Owl film that's out at the moment. In fact the Raptors were at the cinema today with some beautiful owls. There was an eagle owl, a barn owl, a couple of tawny owls and some other but I'm ashamed to say that I couldn't tell you what they are. Beautiful though.
Finished my socks!Yay! Bit too late and dark to take a picture. Tomorrow I promise.
