Sweater Weather

Today the rain has been pouring. Once in a while, it's a beautiful thing. We've reached the best time of the year (now until the end) and I'm feeling very content. The cold weather has also returned: I'll bet with a vengeance after the lovely summer we had. But that makes me happy. Sweater weather. [...]

The May Chapter

The May Chapter

May has seen me do a little travelling for the first time this year. Firstly I went to Brighton - a trusty favourite of mine. The weather held beautifully.

The January Chapter

The January Chapter

I always thought February was the month everyone was unhappy with, but apparently it was January this year.  To be honest I've never really fallen for these statistics but this month...
