Suddenly, refreshingingly, autumn has arrived. We had a nice day getting the cleaning done (whilst I simultaneously made a loaf of bread and a modest 3lbs of crab apple jelly. We had a delicious mushroom, onion and cheese omelette and headed out to Wytham Woods for a nice walk in the woods amongst turning leaves, and hacorns and beech masts. Simply glorious.

Next stop, south Oxfordshire to help celebrate Sian and Mark’s wedding!
