Dear November, it doesn’t feel like you stayed around very long. We packed so much into your days that they just flew past, and now we’re already waving goodbye. From the lovely weather we enjoyed in Switzerland when you first arrived, to the broody skies we saw in Northern Ireland last week, to the long cold walks I took through our neighbourhood as your days grew ever shorter, to the Thanksgiving feast we enjoyed a few days ago, I have great memories of November 2015!
The common was empty this morning as I tramped through under threatening skies. The leaves are mostly gone, and the air feels more wintry than autumnal. Goodbye, November!
