The weather has been all to cock lately. In the past few weeks we've had wall to wall sunshine and the highest September temperatures on record, for a record number of consecutive days. We've also had biblical rain, apocalyptic thunderstorms, wind and hail.
Forget four seasons in a day.... we've had four seasons in an hour!
However, today is the autumn equinox, when the amount of day and night hours are equal and it's all downhill from here on in.
The nights have been perceivably drawing in for several weeks... on dull days it's dark by 7.30 pm. This is the cue to unearth my SAD lamp and set it up on my desk in the workroom.
It's also the time of year when miniaturists dust off their languishing projects, or start afresh on new ones.
Don't even talk to me about languishing projects. My whole life has been full of them. The workroom is full of them. Despite this, I'm seriously considering turning my attention to starting yet another project. Not to mention making a serious effort to complete several 'projects in progress'.
Just as soon as the CMW event is over....... 21 days and counting!
