Autumn has definitely arrived (and winter's on the way)

How do I know this?
1. there was frost on the grass
2. there was floating mist above all of the fields/ ponds/ trees etc.
3. I had to scrape the windows of my car before I could drive to work this morning

Is this a problem?
Well, I'm still waiting for the chimney to be fixed (half the chimney pot in the chimney, the other half on the roof - no fire allowed until mended, so says the chimney sweep). No other form of heating.
So, wooly nightdress, socks and a hot water-bottle; and the dogs are allowed on the bed to act as additional hot water-bottles (although that doesn't always work as sometimes I wake up wondering why I'm getting a draft, and it's because I've been shoved to the edge and everyone else is curled up cozy as you please!) phhhbbbbbt!


  1. have frost. That reminds me that I better bring in the plants. We had one night that I wanted a fire in the woodstove, but by the next morning we had to open the windows. LOL.

    Way to go on the writing!

  2. Thanks Valerie!
    We may be able to hold off another week, but then I think we *will* have to light the fire (chimney has been mended, for now!)
