Quote of the week No. 41

Another sunny autumn day - early mists followed by azure skies topping off tasteful autumn colours. Temperatures still in the high teens.

The woodland floors are damp and musty, and scattered with fat, shiny, sweet chestnuts - at five euros a kilo in the supermarket, I'm training the children to load their pockets with the fattest and the shiniest every day.

Talking of whom, I see that Eric Hoffer agrees with me...

"Call not that man wretched, who whatever ills he suffers, has a child to love." 

It's good to have B-B back!

I suspect they appreciate the chestnuts they have gathered themselves, and they'll love them forever, as I love blueberries.

What a wonderful gift to give them - to teach them to appreciate nature's gifts.

Do you roast them on an open fire, it is something I have loved doing since I was a child.
