Reasons to be Cheerful

autumn forest in Scotland

1. I’m love love loving my photography again. I’d forgotten just how much I enjoyed taking photos until about two months ago. It’s taken a while to get back in the swing of it, but I’m getting there. 🙂

2. This boy, oh this boy… he’s not had the best week, but today he seems to have turned the corner and has been in the best mood since getting home from school today! I’ve had cuddles and kisses and tickles and jokes played. And he went to bed happily too!

3. Conkers! One of my favourite memories of autumn is collecting conkers. One I really wanted to share with my boys. It was a great afternoon with friends and family. Just as it should be. <3

    What a great talent you have – superb images.There is something very magical about the whole conker collecting thing and many of my best memories of my late mum are of this special season, her favourite and mine
