That sense of heaviness as one approaches the week knowing it is going to be cold, and that mid year exams are looming. It is revision week at school for the bigger kids.( Not for the one drawn above though; he is still in the Dick and Dora phase of learning how to read and write).
As much and all as it is cold and grey and wet, it was great to actually stack the fireplace with wood yesterday afternoon and light the fire. Sitting around on Sunday night in front of the fire watching the Tigers win, followed by News and then by sixty minutes was a pleasure.
Next week I will get more organised and have a home cooked meal instead of the home delivery Thai that we ordered in.
