Last week I got a bit caught up with sending out masses of my calendars…it was one of those things I thought would take a whole day, and which actually took nearly a whole week!
The temperature has definitely changed over the last week.
The seasons are gently moving; cranberries are appearing at the grocers, I lit a fire for the first time this season and I’ve worn gloves twice…
I thought it would be a great idea to roast the giant chestnuts I’d bought from the green grocers, but unfortunately I forgot to cut them, and they loudly exploded over the fire guard, narrowly missing the cat!
I did manage to scrape a bit of the soft chestnut, which was left, out of the shell, and sprinkle it with salt, so at least I got a small taste of the Winter to come…which is probably all I want just at the moment!
