As the clocks go back
I love the clocks going back. The change in the length of the day marks the quieting of the land in the run-up to the shortest night. Some of my most intense memories of childhood are of my wonder at the changing of the seasons and the shifts from light to darkness, darkness to light.
In the last week, I have started cooking traditional hearty stews and soups. Today I will be lighting the candles in the window bay at 4.30: the wood burner will be lit and the house will fill with the scents of cooking, oak and apple crumble.
