What a week. I was struck down with Freya’s school germs last Sunday and couldn’t even get out of bed. She was then sent home from school again on Wednesday but I’m pretty sure something else, other than illness, is going on – especially as I had to leave her sobbing my name on Thursday and Friday, which has never happened before. It was heartbreaking.
It’s safe to say I was very pleased when the weekend arrived. To kick it off we went to Cromer on Friday night where is was 18C at 6pm in October! We were on the beach, making sandcastles with no coats in sight. It seemed crazy (but very enjoyable). The shot above is taken from the pier. It’s not technically perfect but I really liked the way it came out. It reminds me of an oil painting.
I hope you’ve had a better week than us.

A bit random this week but I’ve been loving the autumnal light and couldn’t resist having a bit of a play with the leaves and things Freya and I have collected on our walks to and from school.
To me it seems like the leaves have started changing colour earlier this year, not that I’m complaining.
We are going to plant the acorn and see if it grows.

If this is the last butterfly I get to photograph this year, I don’t think I’ll be too disappointed. The comma, with its jagged wings and wonderful orange colouring, is one of my favourites. Also, I got to see a swallowtail for the first time in May so any butterfly beyond that was just a bonus.
My brother popped in yesterday, in between a business trip to Holland and returning to the US where he lives. We decided to go to Strumpshaw Fen to get him some fresh air before he is stuck on planes again.
Luckily it was a beautiful, warm day – and lots of little friends, along with the comma, were out to play.
I was also rather in love with the light in general, without wanting to sound too pretentious. Autumnal, would you say?
As always, I’ve joined in with Darren’s brilliant My Sunday Photo linky. Please click on the camera below to see what other people have submitted. It’s always worth it.
Also, if you have five minutes, please pop back tomorrow when I’ve got another Behind The Book post, this time featuring the wonderful writer and blogger, Lucy Mitchell. Just in case you missed the return of the series last week, following my summer break, here’s a link to my interview with Richard Balls.
Wishing you a lovely week.
