Autumnal joys & wishcrafting

Today Roo went of to his wonderful Forest school.  I drop him at a field on a Dorset country estate & he spends all day in the woods, including lunch over a camp fire.  Ahh, just lovely.  And today.  Oh, to all my fellow brits, today was an unexpected day of Summer.  Seriously, I had to go refind my cool clothes.  I mean, obviously I am always cool, I mean my non-warm clothes. :)

Driving home, with an empty car, I revelled in the beauty of the morning.  I found myself pulling into the layby for our favourite walk to the 'top of the world'.  On my own.  And I went for a glorious walk.  On my own.
I realised its the first time I have taken myself for a walk, in I can't remember how long.

The dew was heavy on the grass and the multitude of cobwebs.  It shimmered rainbows all around my feet.  My photography skills (or can I blame my camera?) just couldn't do the colours justice.

This week on Wishcrafting with Jamie Ridler she asks 'what do you wish for Autumn?'  Well, actually she used the word Fall, but its forever autumn to me. (Also a fave song by Justin Haywood)

What do I wish for?  More of this please.  Wonderful solitary walks.  And shared ones too.  Enjoying this fantastic countryside I live in.

As you wish for yourself, I wish for you too. x
