Lottie's not impressed with the sudden change in the weather. What happened to all that laying around in the garden she thinks!
That's better! A whole sofa next to the fire, just for me :)
I love the ritual of getting everything ready for the first fire of the autumn. There's something very primitive about a fire, it affects all your senses. The crackling sounds, flickering flames, gorgeous smell, and of course the lovely heat. Wonderful!
No, I've never been lucky enough to have a Fortnum and Mason hamper for Christmas. I found this one at the local bottle bank a few years ago. Someone had just thrown it out with their empties. One of my luckier finds!
I hope you're all warm and cosy!
