Autumnal joys

Now I have the remains of the weekend to finish the last jobs that need doing before setting off for London. Next week it's Spirit of Christmas at Olympia, preceded by a trip to St James' Palace with my younger daughter for her Duke of Edinburgh gold award - how exciting! The following week is the Country Living Magazine's Christmas Fair at the Business Design Centre in Islington. A busy couple of weeks, but so much fun - I love meeting all my lovely customers.
