Autumn has well and truly arrived in the UK. The trees have been changing colour since probably early August, but the weather has been sunny and sometimes quite warm.

When it's really cold outside, the house gets so cold the woodburner can only take the edge off it. Last night we were all snugly though.
I have been knitting a lot lately. Somehow I got a lot more knitting done when the kids were home from school, not sure why but I wasn't complaining!
