The days have gradually been getting cooler and the nights closing in sooner here. Over the weekend, our record of every day being over 20 degrees celsius since December 8th was broken yesterday with a very chilly 18. Don't scoff! The wind was truly very brisk, it actually rained (not just drizzle) and when you are used to a mild 23 or 24, it was cold. And so, jumpers and thick socks are emerging from the cupboards to washed and freshened up after months in moth balls and blankets and rugs are being aired. My sinuses start to twitch uncomfortably as soon as the weather gets cooler but I am nonetheless a fan of autumn and even of winter. I guess this is possible when we don't have quite the extreme temperatures of the North. It's good to see old favourites like the rug above, to close the curtains cosily against the dark world at night and to have a good excuse to stay indoors to knit or read. What's the weather like in your part of the world at the moment?
