oranges and lemons


I ate an orange today for the first time for ages. Actually it may have been a cousin to an orange once or twice removed, but you get my drift. We thought we'd better eat some for the Vitamin C. It had been cold all day, but the wind had started to turn from the north to the south west and brought rain. The kitchen was filled with washing drying. My brother took some fig logs home for a fire tonight.

For the first time, it felt like summer really was over.

We have been lighting the woodburner every night for a week or more. And, although I'm not a lover of winter, there's something quite comforting about being curled up with a book, alongside a bevy of dogs and cats jockeying for pole position in front of the blazing fire.
