dear green place...

back in glasgow and back to school for year two

the clocks have fallen back and as autumn turns to winter, the last few yellow leaves cling to the bare branches, the days are short and chilly weather brings woolly jumpers and thoughts of knitting. subliminal christmas messages are no longer subtle as it lies just around the corner.

i find myself looking forward to the light and colour that spring will bring...
