......that's how I would describe the weather today.
I'm trying to revel in the winter, rather than let it get to me.
Walking about yesterday I wandered through a big pile of fallen leaves. One whiff of the musty earthy smell from them threw my mind back to being a kid in Bradgate Park.
All a bit Merchant Ivory, soft focus back-lit memories of mittens and cold ears, but an involuntary smile can't be fought off, or argued with.
I wonder if in thirty years, my kids will catch a whiff of frigid salt air somewhere and be transported back to childhood ?
