If I had dived into one of those, carefully swept and heaped by the Council's cleaners, on the side of the road today, I would blend in and disappear. I think I'd also fit right in with Robin Hood and his gang in Sherwood Forest.
These are the colours I like wearing when it gets cold. There is comfort food and then there are comforting colours - the brown of chocolate and hot gravy, the green of sage, the blinding white of a steaming bowl of rice, the beige of fluffy buttery mashed potatoes and the golden crumbs of cakes and biscuits.
Ironically, Autumn is also when I pull out all my shorts. The boyfriend laughs at the shorts-and-tights combo everytime. He says it makes me look like a "superhero dumpling". But with the onset of ugly spider veins, it's the only way that I can still wear some of the cute hotpants from my vein-free beach bunny days.
I also like to do the German tourist thing sometimes - woolly socks with sandals.
It's good to be able to wear some old Summer favourites in the yucky months.
