I am sorry. I have not been a good blogger. I do not even have the 'busy' excuse because this week has been as long and empty and completely and utterly unproductive.
The only excuse I have had is that I did not want to be a moody blogger. I was tired of moaning to you, so I could only imagine how tired of it you would be.
I have never been a particularly big fan of autumn, or fall as Americans call it (I never got this difference; is it something to do with the leaves falling from the trees?), although apparently my colouring is 'autumnal'. I just hate, hate, hate the early evenings. You don't want to go out because it's so dark and miserable and then you feel lonely and bored. There is not enough light at my desk so I am writing this with barely enough light and I am sure that is why I have such a bad headache; from writing pages and pages without enough light over the last few days.
Pass me the Nurofen Plus. Ouch.
In the mornings it's freezing and so when I go running my fingers almost fall off. But it's not quite cold enough to wrap up in my new scarf and boots and a nice cosy coat. Yet when it's dark and cold you want to snuggle up in your bed more than to go out and face the world. You want to stay in and eat comfort food, even though you can't taste anything because you have a stinking cold.
I moaned anyway.
But then I thought, okay, I hate being miserable so let's find something beautiful in autumn. Something that will make me love it.
I got my camera out. I went to the woods. I started snapping.
OK, so autumn is sort of pretty.
Still, I am pissed off because my camera is now dead and loads of the photos are blurry.
