September is one of my most favourite times of year.
I am now happy to accept long summer days have gone
(well the days that we really can call summery days were few)
now is the time to snuggle indoors with lamplight and candles.
The logs were ordered and neatly piled, always a great comfort to see my log pile is a big one and just waiting ready for the chilly afternoons to arrive.So what have I been up to this summer?
Well we have been very busy.
The barn is virtually finished.
We are just waiting on the Oak beams and facias to arrive and be fitted, then the final section of roof can be tiled.
We decided on Cedar Shingles for the roof tiles as they look so warm but moreover different.
The factt that it is not complete does not mean I have not been titivating, playing, arranging the candles and lanterns.
It may look a mess at the moment, but I can see what it will be like one day and I am happy.
I have been hunting down all sorts of old bits to display, a great way to spend an autumn afternoon.
I may even see if I can make something out of some dried leaves to hang!
Indoors I have been re-arranging.
Cyclamen, scented candles and new baskets to fill.
We have had days on the beach with the boys.
Come rain or shine.
