New pixel palettes

So last week I was going to Blog every day and here we are a week later and there have been not more posts! I really do like making a rod for my own back! However I’m pleased to say that my healthy Autumn campaign is going well! I’m still on track with Sober September…

That was October

October came and went so quickly – it certainly was a strange month in terms of the weather with temperatures in the 20s some days. When the sun wasn’t shining we had some amazing skies and a couple of very dramatic storms. Last week was half term and we went on a mini road trip…

Super clouds – super moon

It began this morning with another lovely later summer early morning walk.  The sky was bluer than blue with curious streaks and wisps of clouds trailing across the sky. This evening there was a super harvest moon. We bolted our tea and rushed to see it rise orange and streaked with cloud,  from the village…
