Seasons of mist
Well really it's more seasons of rain so far but I am getting Autumnal urges to hoard food and bake. I feel like a mouse in the Brambly Hedge children's books and want to pick fruits, pot relishes and pile the shelves high with stores for winter.
I also want to sleep lots more than usual (so virtually all the time really) and listen to lots of Radio 4.
I'm testing spicy, heavy perfumes after a spring and summer of citrus and florals and my nose couldn't be happier, it's as if it's smelling some of the scents for the first time.
I am a total believer in eating seasonally and I think perfuming seasonally makes sense too. Well that's my excuse anyway.
I am off to Liberty tonight to finally sample the new Frederic Malle, then it will be back to the burrow for some Radio 4 before bed!
