Wow! It’s the 18th September! How did that happen? We are half way, yes half way, through September. This means that I am eighteen days late for my annual September gushing. I’m late because I’ve been extremely busy: Si’s parents came to stay for a whole week and it has taken me an (almost) another week to reclaim my home and catch-up with myself. I’ve also been working on some other projects, which I’ll share with you very soon: I’m very excited about these.
Back to the September gushing. I love, loVE, LOVE September. Yes I said it last year, and the year before, and the year before that. Yes, I will say it again next year. There is something really special about September (almost as special as when it snows) the world is starting to get sleepy and slowly putting itself to bed for a long Winter sleep. In September the world starts to change colour: as the light fades into dusky evenings and misty mornings and the trees start to change the leaves to amazing Autumnal colours. Jumpers start to emerge from the bottom of wardrobes and food starts to become casseroles and crumbles. Yet, in September, there is still a hint of Summer’s left over warmth. Yes, I love September!
Before coming home and turning our lovely, large, juicy brambles into bramble jelly…
Ssshhhh – we’ve also made some bramble whisky and bramble vodka, but that won’t be ready until Christmas. I’ll let you know how that turns out ;)
