School Run Colours #3

It is week 3, and I am, contrary to all my expectations, persisting with my School Run Colours linky. A huge thank you to Merlinda and Sara who joined in last week with their very own school run colours.

It has not been easy to keep up with the walking/cycling/scooting to and from school this week. Dropping temperatures and bleak days have done nothing to help my resolve of completely ditching the car for our school run.

But my three year old is an inspiration. Unlike his mother, he thrives in the cold weather and insists on scooting or cycling or walking to school. Even when it rains, because then puddle-jumping as a sport comes into its own.

So egged on by J, I have continued to walk to and from school. There are days when I park the car half-way there and then walk the rest of the way. I do make a serious effort not to drive all the way to the school gates. That would completel defeat the purpose of School Run Colours.

Slowly and steadily, I am getting used to walking four miles every day. I will get there in the end.

In the meantime, two miles daily is a good start. And a great way to capture colour and be inspired by it.

Cold winter sunshine
Rubies sparkle, alluring
Beware, ever-green thorn traps.


If you are new to the School Run Colours linky, you can read more about it here.  To find out how I ended up being inspired to start this linky, please visit my previous post School Run Colours - My Brand New Linky

I would love it if you added the School Run Colours badge to your post, and if you followed me on twitter (@vaichin). Please use the hashtag #SchoolRunColours when sharing your posts on social media, so we can spread the word. I will be pinning all linked up posts to my Pinterest board School Run Colours. It would be great if you could follow the board.

  1. I love the look of berries this time of the year... they really add this so much needed colour.

  2. As I don't have to walk anyone to school, I barely take any notice whilst rushing through commuters to get to work. I really should take more notice of my surroundings.

  3. We don't seem to get many berries on our holly down here in the South! I love the school run though - it's my only exercise of the day I think!

  4. Very striking photograph. I love the idea of walking to school but the logistics of two different schools at opposite sides of the town don't help! Must try harder in the New Year!

  6. I love this photo and I think it's such a brilliant idea to look around and see the beauty, even if on a rushed trip to school. I will be looking out a 3 o'clock!

  8. Lovely pic. We love walking to school, but we don't always have time to look around and take in our surroundings. You sound like you're doing brilliantly with this!

  9. What a great thing to persevere with. I'm sure you'll feel the benefit of all that exercise. We live over 10 miles from my boys' schools so it's sadly out of the question for us.

  10. This morning, having read a lot of your posts, I noticed how the Virginia Creeper on a house a few doors up from my office has changed colour, it looks amazing, I didn't however take a phone #fail x

  11. I used to struggle with walking the school run but the more I did it, the more used to it I got. Now, I don't think I'd ever want to do anything other than walk it. Love the colours on your photo. I really must take a snap on our walk-I keep forgetting though. Hopefully I will link up to this soon-it's a great idea!

  13. I love this idea! My son is too big for me to take him to school and the school is too close but I really want to do something similar.

  14. Great shoot! Those berries remind me of Christmas so much!
