November 1st. And still quite warm outside. Fingers crossed it will last another couple of weeks – at least until we get back from visiting our summer house. I’m going down there with my parents next weekend (not this weekend) for some peace and quiet. Can’t wait.

Now we have a couple of dark weeks before it is time to take out the Advent candle lights. Then it will be a bit brighter again. Looks like I can take some time off over the holidays too. Nice. I need a proper break. Something to look forward to! Hubby will be off for three weeks. Lucky him.
