Autumn term begins

Nineteen degrees at 8am. Overcast and sultry. 

Trees all around are showing occasional glimpses of their new colours for autumn. The old chickens have started to moult and this years' junior hens have started to lay. After a week of trial-and-error, our new autumn-term routine is beginning to emerge, and Mama's days are now spent sparring with Jakob! trying to rub the rough edges off this ever-so-nearly-finished building project we call our home, and in the ongoing search for our garden, which has gotten lost under a summer's growth of grass and weeds. 

Easy does it.

Are your children back at school already? Over a week to go in this region still.
