The twilight season. In the city I’ve always grumbled that the autumn & winter months are full of fraud; acrylic knitwear for too-hot homes, flame-effect fires, plastic evergreens & grey slushy snow. Out here it’s different.


I swear, it’s not about idealising the past, but just living more authentically; getting a little bit closer to how our quiet, forgotten animal selves were supposed to be.
I like to feel the cold when it blows in. It means I appreciate the fire all the more.

Just about all of the things you assert happens to be astonishingly accurate and it makes me wonder the reason why I had not looked at this with this light previously. This particular article really did switch the light on for me personally as far as this specific issue goes. However at this time there is 1 factor I am not too comfortable with and while I try to reconcile that with the actual central theme of the position, permit me observe what the rest of the subscribers have to point out.Well done.

How do I make my own Blogger layout? I already made a header, I want to learn how to make a matching layout?

Aw, lovely to see you here karen! It sometimes seems a bit like soft wraps are a bit of a well-kept-secret in the mothering world, which I think is why people who discover them feel compelled to tell the whole world! 🙂 Maybe you need another little one so you can use one yourself? 😉 xx

Well, seen through your eyes and brand new life experience far from the urban jungle (if my understanding is correct – I have just discovered your blog!) Fall certainly looks more welcoming.

Thanks Emma. Tonight has been a frantic lost-charger-escaped-kitten-no-bread ORDEAL so I’m desperately craving the simple life tonight! Sigh!
