Yet another glooooorious autumn day, so we did what every other self-respecting family did and took ourselves out into it.

Perfect, perfect day...

walking in the magic woods, searching for elves.

Jolly found a real actual magic wand

there was magic everywhere we looked

And this is a rather smug-looking Bad Bad Dog. She chased a deer, got lost and couldn't find us for ten minutes. By the time she got back she couldn't walk on her bad leg - she had to lie down for ten minutes before we could get her to hobble back to the car. Idiot dog.
