Time to start work ...

Over the last week there have been a couple of important milestones in the countdown to Christmas.

The first two of the "last posting" dates for surface mail passed at the beginning of this week.  It isn't actually called 'surface mail' any more, but so many people still think of it in this way that even the Post Office web site uses the term somewhere in the explanation!

Secondly, we are now into October and, with last week's equinox behind us, the days are getting shorter.  We are having some glorious autumn days at the moment and my journey to work has been beautiful, with the mist sitting in the low lying areas so that just the tops of the trees poke out and with a large luminous moon hanging in the blue sky.

Time to start card making ...
