It was a weekend of 'this time last week' conversations and looking at photos, uploading them onto a photo book website, filing away the maps and tourist guide books and telling anyone who cares to listen how lovely Lisbon is to visit.
The central heating has quietly clicked on in the mornings, Autumn has arrived. We keep the boiler going all year round but with the thermostat on low so the heating doesn't switch on until the temperature drops. So the fact that it is now turning on in the mornings is justification for me to mention that it is 'freezing' outside. Exaggerate? Me? Never!
A weekend of proper roast pork Sunday lunch and a new Mary Berry recipe for spiced Apple Cake for dessert. Football on the TV, the opportunity to curl up with a book while the husband frets about Spurs' form this season.
At the moment I can hear the rain outside and I'm just contemplating whether or not it is dark enough to put on the lights beating in mind that it's only 4.30. P's just taken Coco for a walk and both of them have their winter raincoats on. So as I wave to Sian and her merry bunch of Me on Mondayers, I'll share this photo with you. Me on Monday
