A walk on Thundersley Common

Just a quick post that I thought I'd share with you. I've just come back from a very impromptu but thoroughly enjoyable walk, leaving him-indoors doing the things that him-indoors wanted to do. It was such a gloriously mild afternoon it just had to be done. After the dull rainy days we've had recently it was a real pleasure to get out - plus I'm on a mission to get fit and what better way to go about it. Watch this space.




I lost count of all the birds I could hear singing. 


The fallen leaves were in abundance 


and very damp, but everything
 smelled of that lovely woody, autumnal mustiness


Several dog-walkers bid me good afternoon and I enjoyed taking in the fresh air.



 this cheeky little chappy followed me for some time and 
actually stood on my toes for his picture to be taken - so tame.




On my way back through the village I spotted this - a mini pop-up library for villagers to make use of - how cool is that.










Bye for now, see you soon x

  1. Lovely post, Patricia. Yes, after a murky start this morning for my drive to Norwich, this afternoon has been much brighter - and WARM! I can cope with this kind of autumn!

  5. a walk in the forest at autumn is lovely. Must go and find these pop up libraries, I'm not sure if they are temporary or to stay

  6. Oh, how envious I am Patricia, a cool Autumn walk in the beautiful countryside. Lovely! What a cute little squirrel, and so tame too. I absolutely love the idea of the mini library, in fact would like to know more about it. Is it private, or organised by the Council or a community group? The little box is beautifully decorated. Cheers xxx

  7. It's good to take advantage of the mild weather and enjoy a walk in the woods and get fit at the same time. I hope to follow your example with both! I like the idea of the pop-up library.

  8. It was lovely down here too yesterday, and we popped out for an impromptu walk around the lake. Not quite as many fallen leaves as you have, but a great day to be out and about.

  9. You are making the most of these lovely gentle days Patricia - the pop up library is fun, and a good way to recycle unwanted books too.

  12. I think these little libraries are a great idea, they really are a sign of community spirit if nothing else and how good is that to find. xx

    Lovely squirrel and singing birds, fallen leaves -- the autumn is here, although the weather in London is warm. You're lucky!

  15. The weather at the end of October as very conducive to walks, Patricia, so I'm glad you took advantage of it. I read a post on an American blog about these Little Free Libraries and I'm delighted to see they are starting to pop up over here too.
