My job is mobile and I split my time working alternate weeks in Norfolk and Nottinghamshire. I drive down country roads, enjoying rural England through the seasons.

Autumn morning

Feels really autumnal this morning - roads and fields are damp from all the rain this week, but the sun is out and there's that lovely crispness in the air. But there's still a swallow skimming and diving outside my window so summer isn't completely over yet and I'm conscious of not wanting to wish the seasons over before their time.

Autumn is my favourite though - a season of change, time to tidy the garden and prepare it for its annual rest. Most of all, though, I love the colours. They feel warm and comfortable - mellow in a way that I'd like to be but so rarely achieve.
