The November Whirl

Is it just me, or is everyone whizzing around at a rate of knots just now?

It always feels incongruous, this start of winter season, as people get busier and busier while our circadian rhythms cry out for us to be lazier and lazier!

Here in London, all is well.  We are zipping around as ever, working hard and playing hard, and Matthew is coping manfully with my ever increasing fever about Christmas (40 days, yo!).  It’s lovely to be busy and to see so many lovely folk, but I’m also getting to the point where I write naps in the diary (next one is tomorrow evening!).

It was lovely to have mum and dad to visit this past weekend and to show them the house and the cats.  I genuinely thought my father might try to steal Fry – they are definitely buds for life now!  This weekend we get to catch up with Matthew’s family, which I’m mega excited about.  I’m looking forward to catching up with them all, particularly Elly, who’s glowing as she continues to grow our beautiful niece!  Beyond excited for February.

Holiday Hampers continues apace – the next two weeks are the real crunch time for it all!

So all is busy, but all is well.

How are you?

    I've been wanting naps lately, and it does seem like time is passing super quickly – wonder if that is related 😉

      More naps for all, say I!

    For me October is crazy due to the school schedule and November is much more manageable. Thank God.

    November is always insane. And always destroys me. Every. Time.
