dark dark woods

2 November 2014

What a warm autumn we've had so far. Very nice I must say. After a year of living here, I really feel familiar with all the wild places around us, an I think our littlun is too.

I'm not a big fan of winter (as I'm sure you know!) I am already struggling with the dark early evenings and trying to think of ways to improve my mental wellbeing through the winter. The trouble is, the dark makes me feel sleepy and lethargic. I think I was a dormouse in a former life.


  1. I've got some serious 'woods-envy' right now (if that's a thing!) Looks like a great morning out exploring with the family.
    I have the same problem with the onset of darker mornings and evenings, I feel the purchase of a SAD lamp coming on!

  2. Beautiful photographs, nothing beats a walk in the woods. Love your little one's fox jumper - adorable! xx

  3. Oh wow...despite having about 19 years on her, I'm seriously coveting Pehr's fox sweater! That girl has some serious style thanks to you :) I've been loving this warm autumn too, confusing as it's been! x

  4. Oh boy, sleepy, forgetful and grumpy is my default setting throughout winter, all I want to do is sleep! Lovely photos, am also coveting Pehr's jumper and your woodland walk, we're knee-deep in mud and water here in the Welsh valleys
