All the leaves are brown

autumn-leaf-dscl-resizedThe way I look at Autumn has changed as I have got older. When I was younger it signalled the end of the summer and back to school, but now I see it through different eyes. Not just the fading of summer flowers, plants dying back and falling leaves, but as a most beautiful season with it’s own special charm.img_5139img_5134

Although my love of Autumn is a quite recent, collecting conkers has always been a big thing with me – I can not walk past a conker on the ground without picking it up.originalphoto-465464040-512128originalphoto-465464427-079369

Notting Hill and a classic anedote

DSC_0146 bw2

Not just a great film…….  which Mr Gascoyne and I quote lines from all the time.

These are just a few of our favourites quotes:

” I enjoyed the movie very much. I was just wondering, did you ever consider having more horses in it?”
“Well, we would have liked to. But it was difficult, obviously, being set in outer space”

“Yes – happiness isn’t happiness without a violin-playing goat”

“Whoopsidaisies!”

“Can you adios those dishes and take out that trash?”

“Right. It’s not a classic anecdotes, is it?”
“Not a classic, no”

“Well, you tell me which bit you liked most.. and I’ll tell you if I enjoyed making it”

It’s a lovely (if expensive) bit of London, its houses painted in sugary sweet, pastel colours and Portobello Road famous for its antique shops and market.
