I am now feeling cold and think that Winter is now starting to close its steel jaws around me (imagery courtesy of Ted Hughes). The one thing that I really don’t like about this time of year is that when I leave for work it is dark and by the time I get home it is still dark. I don’t get to see my house or garden until weekends and I find this so sad as this season has so much to offer. I adore watching the birds squabbling over the fat balls that I hang up for them; I love watching the flocks of starlings swooping over the sky. These pleasures are unfortunately denied me during the working week.
Still, on Friday school ends and I will once again get to know my own space. I can’t wait.
