A Sunday at home.

Today’s weather has been typically Novemberish…drizzly, grey and dull. But still not  cold. It’s been a surpringly mild month so far, although having just listened to the forecast it seems that is about to change over the next few days.

I feels like I very rarely have a whole Sunday off at the moment.  If I’m not rotared on I tend to try and pick up an extra shift (more ££s) or I’m sleeping between night shifts. So having a whole day off today felt like a real treat.  After a lazy lie in and a cooked breakfast Mark went for a round of golf and Paddy and I decided to take the dogs for a walk. And we decided that he would be the photographer for the trip! Despite nearly having palpitations about handing my phone over to my 7 year old, off we went to see what we could see.

We talked about autumn colours,  and how having more than one colour in a photo made it interesting…

…then a quick photo to admire his walking boots!

Then a bit of leaf admiration…

…before spotting some funny graffiti.  Talk about from the sublime to the ridiculous!

I took this one. I love the contrast of the colours.  And that yellow just screams ‘AUTUMN’ at me!

Back to Paddy for some more rsndom shots…

..and we were surprised to see this in the front garden of a nearby house!

A few more naturey photos…

…after which he got bored of taking them. But it was fun while it lasted,  and a great way of really taking a good look at the area where you live.  We walked a total of 4 miles and both he and I and the dogs came home worn out ready for a hot drink and a cake.

We’ve been making some big decisions over the past week and there will be some major changes for us coming up soon.  So a relaxing day at home, complete with a decent dose of fresh air was just what I needed to relax and blow the cobwebs away.
