What an amazing day! We were greeted first thing with a super cold and white frost but as the day rushed along everything thawed exposing the most incredible colours out there, orange and yellow leaves, bright pink roses! I caught my first ever falling leaf. I was lucky enough to get in two dogs walks and to spend some time footling about outside.
I also did a bit of work on this years christmas card- I make our cards EVERYYEAR without fail even when my babies were little. They change in theme and medium every year & this year it’s a lino print of a peace dove, I hope it shows the recipient of each card that I really do care……
Exhausting, but happily the day was ended by feeding the Rayburn with ash twigs & logs (I pride myself now on being able to light the fire without using anything like fire-lighters) until it got hot enough to roast the chestnuts which my children collected this morning.
