the return of the R

September, the month where the R returns.... summer days of walking barefoot and skipping through the grass are slowly, passing by daily.   I feel melancholy, blue, at the passing of the summer.  Missing June & July already.

But secretly I love September - the slightly cooler days brings a sense of harvest to the home.  Jams and flavoured spirits to be made.  Wood store to be stocked.  Apples to be harvested from our tree.  In September I start looking at stationery, feeling the need for a new notebook or pens set.  Maybe I shall treat myself to a new to do list or school year calendar.

This month already, there is alot to look forward to.

Back to school - whilst I will miss the boys, and hate the daily routine, I will relish the peace and time to crack on with projects and work during school hours.  They are really looking forward to going back and seeing their friends.  

This month it's also Rufus' 6th Birthday - where has the time gone?  I am feeling a slight panic at the thought of planning this one.  In the home - we are (forever) renovating and re-decorating, I am hoping this month to finish a few projects, and finally move some paint tins to the shed.

What do you like about September?  Do you have plans?
