Scent has always been such a powerful conjurer. It’s the sudden smell of damp earth and ice in the breeze that sounds off another season. It’s a subtle thing but it’s there, quietly encroaching, gaining momentum as the dusks come in earlier and it’s darker in the AM. With it, the twins go back to full length pyjamas and we adjust slowly as we take it all in.

I love this time of year. I find it comforting. The days are still beautifully warm and,  like red lips in a snow storm,  there’s nothing quite as nice – nor enticing – as a glass of red wine out on a cool autumn evening.
