Dear supermarkets, You aren’t even being subtle about it now – your Christmas merchandise it beginning to take over the aisles. It’s hard to see the Hallowe’en products because there is so much red, green and white! Can I just ask that at least you do not start playing any of your festive music for at least another 6 weeks?
Dear Weather Gods, This continuing warm weather is fantastic. I had started looking out my autumn/winnter clothes last weekend, and putting away the summer ones, thinking I’d need them this week, but it’s great still to be wearing the summer stuff. I think it’s all going to change this weekend, but thank you for such a prolonged late summer.
Dear goldfinches, Where have you been? It’s nice to have you back in the garden and on the bird feeders again.
Dear Great British Bake Off, Only one more week to go – I can’t believe it. It seems to have gone so quickly this year and I am going to miss you.
Dear knitting, Finally, I seem to be getting somewhere with you after several false starts and having tried various combinations of circular needles and/or double pointed needles. It’s going to be a slow process, but hopefully I am going to have a neck warmer, hat and mittens completed by the time the very cold weather comes along.
