Autumn

is definitely my very most favourite of seasons. The colours, the crunchy leaves, the rain, the sunny-but-not-hot days, the crisp evenings. I must admit I'm not a fan of the freezing mornings but we can't have it all I suppose!

Recently on Mondays I've had to come into the hospital for blood tests in the morning and then back in the arvo for appointments. It's a 35 minute round trip to the hospital so I don't like to go home and come back. Sometimes I go and borrow my sister's house which is only 10 minutes from Charlie's. Last week I went to my old stomping grounds, Garden City. I used to live south of the river and they were my local shops. I miss them, so I headed that way for a wander and a massage while I waited.

Today I headed to spotty to take advantage of their 30% off yarn and then found a nice park near the hospital and armed with a ham and cheese croissant, a banana smoothie and some crochet, I made myself comfty for some outdoor peace. Dappled sunshine warm on my back and crunchy leaves beneath my feet. What better way to spend a few hours?

Autumn is my favourite season as well.
It sounds like you found a great way to spend the time. I've had to restrain myself from going to Spotlight as I have a bit of a wool stash at home. I will try to restrain myself tomorrow as well :).

My favourite season too. Even though it was foggy and 1*C this morning when we walked, by the afternoon it was lovely and warm and sunny( well 16*C!!) That's warm here. I take a cup of tea and a book outside and The Labradors play. I eschewed the BlackSpot Of Doomlight sale. I have too many other things on the go. Some that I am avoiding!!
