The house was still gloomily dark at 7am. Opening the curtains helped a little, but not much. Cursing these dark winter mornings, I dragged myself downstairs to brew some tea. Normally I’d be rushing back upstairs again to get ready for the school run, but something caught my eye. [...]
So lucky that school runs go through such beautiful woodlands. The colours are lovely at this time of the year. Driving through falling leaves and humming to a tune on the radio together with James makes me happy. Sometimes it’s the simple things that bring life into perspective.
