HI THERE FRIENDS,

WELL, IT'S NOVEMBER,  OC TOBER IS A LINGERING MEMORY OF LOVELY DAYS, WALKING ALONG THE OXFORD CANAL, PICKING CANAL SIDE CRAB APPLES, BERRIES AND HAWS FOR AUTUMN-INSPIRED PHOTOS TO TREASURE.  DAYS OUT, BUSY DAYS AND ACCEPTING THAT OUR ENTENDING SUMMER IS AMAZING AND WE CAN'T QUITE REALLY BELIEVE THE SUMMER WEATHER IS STILL WITH US.  I HOPE ALL OF YOU ENJOYED OUR LONG LASTING SUMMER. ENJOYING EVERY MOMENT. TREASURING THOSE GOLDEN, GLORIOUS AUTUMN DAYS.  HAPPY OCTOBER AND NOW ITS NOVEMBER AND WE'VE HAD SOME GREAT SUMMER-LIKE DAYS, GLORIOUS AUTUMN TINTED LEAVES, DEEP BLUE SKIES AND THE LINGERING SWEET SMELL OF SUMMER.

THIS WEEKEND, WE'VE REMEMBERED ALL THOSE WHO FELL IN THE T WO GREAT WARS AND ALL OTHER CONFLICTS THROUGHOUT THE WORLD.  FOR OUR TOMORROW THEY GAVE THEIR TODAY .  WE WILL REMEMBER THEM - POPPIES FOR EVER -LEST WE FORGET.

AND HEY HO, CHRISTMAS IS JUST AROUND THE CORNER AND IT WILL BE GREAT xxx
