It is time to return to work after the long summer holiday and the long hot summer days lazing around with the donkeys are over. It is good to get back to work, re-engage with the world outside this small field, and justify my existence by earning my living again.
The weather has changed and the first rains of autumn have arrived, but gently. The fierce winds will come later. The return to work has been gradual: a whole week messing about in my classroom, setting up the bookshelves and the materials for another year of classes. I love my new classroom.
The last of the vegetables are now coming out of the garden and the donkeys are enjoying all the spare greenery thrown their way.
Not much of a blogpost really, was it? But I spent the day mostly having a very long leisurely lunch in Sella with friends, in a restaurant with a tea towel theme. Powerful stuff.
