This is not the weather the cuckoo likes but I do.

When I came home and found our front door mat covered in leaves it made me was days before I could bring myself to sweep them up.

A few of them made their way inside. I left them there for as long as I could.   


p.s. Just dipping my toes in...still a bit chilly round here x 


  1. Love the leaves against the timber floorboards. x

  2. I knew we were kindreds, bring on the winter weather! I have new boots to celebrate! WELCOME BACK KYLIE! Xxxxxxx
