I know autumn isn't a big deal in the northern hemisphere, or even down in Melbourne and Canberra where the weather is colder but in tropical Brisbane we have very few "proper" autumn trees that change colour and lose their leaves. So I really look forward to seeing the odd tree blazing with colour. The back entrance to E's school has a lovely avenue of deciduous trees so we've been really enjoying the colours, especially against the bright blue sky.
Today is the second day of the two week school holidays for June/July. It's just lovely not to have to get up and think about school lunches and ironing uniforms and jumping in the car to drive to school. G has a cold so we are having a nice, lazy time just hanging out at home and pottering around. E has a friend here to play today so I have three little girls munching their lunch while I grab five minutes to blog.
