Autumn Leaves

I am not the biggest fan of Autumn and Winter (apart from Christmas obviously), but I do like the changing Autumn leaves. The colours are stunning and if it is cold but sunny (definitely emphasis on sunny here!) walking on/in the crunchy leaves can be so much fun.

Last weekend we spent pretty much one whole afternoon raking up the leaves in our garden (I swear you couldn’t even see the grass anymore). Our little girl had so much fun helping her daddy with the leaves. I am not sure how much help she actually was in the end, but both had a brilliant time.

I only made it outside for a few minutes as I was still suffering from an acute sinusitis (I am starting to feel better now though – finally!). Because I am nearly 33 weeks pregnant, there was not a lot of medication I could take to soothe the pain. I took the odd paracetamol, but tried to limit them as much as possible.

Here are a few pictures I took at the weekend.
