Savouring slowness

rabbit, bunny, wood, insects, singing, picture books, children, kids, Hannah Foley, illustrator, illustrationFinch has a cold and has been wandering around the house wheezing like a little train. It’s gone to his chest and he’s asthmatic. He clamped on some child’s ear defenders from the bottom of the toy box proclaiming that it helped his earache, then spent the rest of the day yelling at us. Outside the weather has been golden and mild. Little Owl collected red leaves in the park and made a bouquet, while humming ‘Santa Claus is coming to town’. Next week it will be back to school again and the mad tumble to Christmas will begin. For now, we are going to bake Delia’s Parkin ready for Bonfire Night and savour our slow mornings.

    I do hope Finch feels better quickly. The autumn is hurtling by & bonfire night will be upon us ……. though it seems the fireworks have already begun around here. Let’s hope tonight they’re quieter.
