We are now in the period of the year where my dear partner leaves for work before dawn and returns after dark Monday to Friday. Can you get three for two on serotonin anywhere? I'm not particularly an outdoor junkie - why walk in the sun when you can see pictures of it on screen? - but I do understand that from time to time it is good for me.
What a privilege to be able to gaze out of my window by day on to a garden of gorgeous reds, browns and yellowy greens - and also to live with someone who can, with minimal effort, transform our conservatory so it mirrors those colours. Local guests who wish to dress to match the furniture (they do exist, really) need to move into the season of reds and purples.
