I’m a bit late with my homework this week – it’s been a bit of a busy week chez Sowandsew. Mr S is away working, and I am looking after the Little Ones, trying to keep track of my work and tick off some things on my to-do list as well.
What a good word ‘comfort’ is for this time of year. I’ve posted recently about the pleasures of autumn – and how many of them involve settling somewhere cosy, with blankets, a fire, hot drinks and good food, friends, good books and craft-work. To me, taken together, this is all a picture of comfort. Because the drawing in of the days means that more time is spent indoors (and as we both work from home, that means at home), it is at this time of year that I feel the need to clear out, declutter, tidy and clean. I don’t ‘spring clean’ – spring is a time for being outside, doing things in the garden, taking walks, revelling in the lighter, brighter days. But autumn, that’s when I want to get our home ready for the winter, make it comfortable and cosy and welcoming. My autumn-clean is in full spate at the moment, and soon I’ll be able to cwtch in for the winter.
