I am in no way trying to hurry on the end of summer, but there’s a definite hint of cooking apples and knee socks in the air.

I’m outside a lot more than I was last year, now that we’re able to ditch the car and walk more places. It definitely gives you a better appreciation for the alternation between bright autumn sunshine and sudden arctic blasts!

We’re stockpiling all the bits of wood from various building works, and looking forward to using it for free fuel in our fireplaces, so I must admit that’s quite a sweetener to the darkening evenings.

So as the nights (and duvets) draw in, what are you most looking forward to?
