This month seems to have whizzed by in record time. For me it both began and ended with a cold – with perhaps five or so days respite in between. We’ve had flood induced visitors (at one point, there were four adults, two kids, a dog and a pair of goldfish residing at our house) and done lots and lots and lots of planting in our new garden…Continue reading “November”
Eleven months of the year down, summer is nigh, yet this last month has felt more autumnal than anything. It’s been a cool and wet spring, and despite Christmas now being just a few weeks away, because of the weather it still feels like we’ve got months to go.

So while I never like to wish away time, I’m rather glad to see the end of November.
Despite the challenging days, like always, there have been moments of joy – this is what’s been making me smile this month…Continue reading “What’s making me happy: November”
