1st November 2010



Jeez , I can't believe it's November already, can you ? I don't know about you but today certainly doesn't seem like November . It's been relativly warm and sunny not what you would normally associate with what I class as a winter month . Are we in winter now or is it still classed as Autumn? Then again there are still lots of green leaves on the trees and nowhere near as much leaf colour as there has been in previous years or is that just me also?



The half term holidays flew by with quite a few walks lots of playing and also quite a lot of craftiness by yours truly but I'll save that for another post. These photos were taken along the banks of the river Wear not far from my parents house .
On the afternoon we went on this walk the tide was very low and you can see that all the sludge and things that are normally under the water were all exposed . Lots of tyres and seaweed along with branches and the odd old boat.



This part of the river used to be a hive of activity , there was a pottery and a paper works and many many moons ago there was also shipyard . All that has gone now , just a few ruins here and there and a boathouse where people store jet skis . I have to admit I wouldn't particularly like to get a mouthful of this water as it isn't the cleanest!!



So now we are getting back into routine with a Halloween disco to look forward to tomorrow night and then the build up to the Christmas holidays -- it's only six weeks until they break up again .............

Very moody and atmospheric photos. I can't say I would want to be on that beach right now! I think it is autumn as I associate Dec,Jan,Feb with winter, Mar,Apr,May with Spring and Jun, July Aug with Summer! Do your boys have a winter term at school? We don't down here. Very strange!
