I could spend forever playing the leaves with the dogs. Walking down leafy streets drives them absolutely wild, each step I take kicks them up, even the rustling sound drives them wild. I've still not figured out exactly what the games is, but it seems to involve catching as many leaves as possible in their mouths. It can be pretty dangerous though, Scally gets a little bit too into it and has run into my foot and leg more than a few times. If I'm lucky she knocks me over, if I'm unlucky her mouth is open and I loose another pair of tights.
I think they might actually be more upset than me when they have all blown away.
I think this might be my new go to outfit. I've had more luck than usual in my favourite charity shops, a couple of absolutely lovely dresses (including this one) and possibly my best find ever; this pair of second hand Minnetonka moccasins. They are a brand that I have admired for a long time, but a little bit out of my price range for casual footwear. When I found them earlier this week I may have got a little bit excited. They're really comfy and perfect for days when you don't need boots, although I'm not sure how many more we will have this year. I've started doubling up my tights and I've got my thermal underwear on in these photos. So cosy!
