Autumnal feelings...

So, recently I've come to realise how much I love October :) in my opinion its the best month of the year. It's not ridiculously frosty and icy and it's not horribly hot and humid . I love waking up in the mornings, making myself a mug of coffee, putting on my woollen scarf and setting off for Pippa's house at 7:45 in the morning :) I love walking outside when there are hardly any cars around, and the suns still low in the sky so it's shining on the green and trees. I love how its chilly but not enough to get my teeth chattering. October the perfect balance between the leaves still on the trees and the stage when the leaves on the ground have turned soggy and mulchy. I love not having to be high maintinence like in summer, and just wearing oversized jumpers. It's such a comforting month, when I go to bed early and watch Star Wars with a couple of Kitkats. It just puts me in the kind of mood where I can acomplish anything :) whats your favourite month?

When tidying a room one finds many things..

So, my brother has recently set off for University. It's not as weird as I thought not having him at home would be, but still slightly quieter. Still, it's given me more windows to talk to my family so that’s a plus. Of course, him leaving for Plymouth means we've tidied his room, so its considerably cleaner, with a comfy double bed :) it’s still strange looking around it; it’s still the same colour it was when we were little but it’s got writing on the walls now, and posters, and phased into a less "messy boyish room".
So, of course, I was wandering around in there at the weekend, trying out his bed to see how comfy I found it, when I found an old toy of his. (I have so much more freedom in playing with his toys now; I was NEVER allowed to play with his Hornby -.-) It’s a really amazing toy actually though. I remember the first time he got, and I was amazed by it. Basically it's a clear plastic sphere, with little coloured plastic levels and pathways. You have to turn the sphere all over the place to keep a little silver ball on the paths and you start at point 1 and end at 100. I've been amazed at how much fun I'm having with it :D but its so odd how well I remember it, and how when I saw it in the wardrobe I freaked out because I knew what it was :) Old memories I suppose. New favourite toy!
