Today has been a day for normality.
Cleaning the kitchen, getting Christmas cards planned ( I have usually written and sent mine by the start of December!) and organising small, inexpensive gifts.
Traditionally I send small, sweet Christmas decorations to a couple of friends and to my mother in law every December...so these need to go off too, ..........
There is a chill in the air today too, the first time I think it has felt really cold....... Auntie Glad, back from a week's holidays caught me in the centre of the village and held my hand kindly and tightly as she mentioned my brother......
"Get inside Gladys" I told her" you'll catch a chill!"
"Oh I don't mind the cold" she said brightly "it kills the bugs!!!"
