happy little moments... the prettiest autumn tree

It's no secret round here that I'm more than a little bit obsessed with autumn leaves. So imagine how happy I was when I saw this beautiful red tree on Sunday afternoon. The autumn fairies must have used up an awful lot of their red paint supplies on this beauty and spent hours fluttering amongst the leaves, delicately painting each leaf. And their magic yielded great results- it shone out amongst the other orange, yellow, golden beauties in Waterlowe park on sunday afternoon. If you live in London get there quick and admire it before one by one the leaves twist, twirl and float thier way to the ground....

And the happy moments were not just limited to tree admiration that day... I also enjoyed the extra hour brought by daylight saving time witha guilt-free lie-in, wandered around the rest of the park, went to a lovely craft fair in Lauderdale house, found a pretty plum dress in a nearby charity shop for just £7, made the tastiest roast potatoes for dinner, helped carve a pumkpin, crocheted on the sofa late into the evening and had a foot bath treat :)

It's nice to take a step back from stress and work to enjoy and remember these happy little moments.
What's been cheering you up lately?
