October Rust


Hello autumn! It's here! When the rain stops I'll take this little man out to collect some conkers, and ask Pappy Jack senior to drill a hole and put a string through. Then all my 'don't throw', 'don't swing', and 'don't hit' training will go out the window while we have a game! Oh how confusing life is for a little one.

I captured these photos in St James' Park, London, on a recent holiday. The weather was mild, and the leaves were crisp. It was a fabulous day all round. Jack clung to this leaf for a few hours, taking it everywhere. Even on to the tube! He wore the American Apparel California fleece raglan jumper and the flannel long sleeve button shirt

We hope you're enjoying Autumn wherever you are!



Peekaboo Autumn!

    1. Haha- here's a great definition:

      Conkers is a traditional children's game in Britain and Ireland played using the seeds of Horse Chestnut trees—the name 'conker' is also applied to the seed and to the tree itself. The game is played by two players, each with a conker threaded onto a piece of string: they take turns striking each other's conker until one breaks.
