It's almost 6.30pm, and it's already getting dark outside; not being helped by the sky, heavy with clouds and threatening rain. The wind is up, and it's really quite blustery. Just the evening to get everything done and coorie doon by the woodburner, a couple of candles lit, a good book or a bit of sewing to to , or the whirring of the wheel to keep you company. However, it won't be tonight - the sitting room is still full of boxes of 'my stuff', some half unpacked, some not yet touched. Due to a major shift in plans, though, I am able to put my house back together again and re-make my home, it looks very likely that I will be staying in it, albeit it with massive changes in my personal life. So, in a couple of weeks time I hope to be back in there, woodburner lit, getting on with my life in the home that I love. Life is full of surprises, isn't it?
