School Run Colours 7 Jan 2015

Happy New Year! Welcome to a brand new edition of School Run Colours, the first of this new year. If you, like me, have decided to undergo a lifestyle change for the better, this link-up is the one thing that is likely to keep you going.

Think about it. Walk the school (or work or errand) run instead of driving the car. You save a few (petrol) pennies, you shed a few (weight) pounds. A win-win if you ask me. 

There is more. Take the opportunity to admire your surroundings, appreciate the colours that abound even on the darkest of evenings and let it ignite the creative spark in you. Perhaps to take a photograph or to pen a few words. 

Here are my School Run Colours for this week. And a Haiku inspired by them.

Leafless shoots grasping
Gold in a blue winter sky
Cloak of shrouding mist

School Run Colours

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 add the School Run Colours badge to your post, and if you follow 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 will be great if you could follow the board too.

  12. It was dark and miserable this morning . I used to enjoy doing the school run, we used to learn new ( makaton ) signs as the kids couldn't speak.

  13. Nice linky, I used to walk the school dro and then we moved and now we live 5 miles from school along a main road with no paths and then country lanes, so sadly it is not practical anymore. Mich x
