Autumn truly arrived today. The morning started misty and chilled. The leaves had all but fallen from the trees and were being swept up by park attendants and other adults, only to be kicked at by those with a child inside them. This is the time for bonfires and fireworks, for dark mornings and darker nights, for getting cosy in front of a fire, for warming soups and woollen socks, for jumpers and jumping. Autumn is finally here heralding the winter ahead. I wonder what the winter will bring this year. Will it be wet and mild or cold and crisp. Only time will tell.
