Weather is what defines November. The joy of a crisp, bright day, just right for a walk among the autumn colours. Wrap up warm on a cold night for spicy food under the stars. On a rainy afternoon, will you hole up on the sofa with a homemade hot chocolate and toast or perhaps some cake and ale? Light a fire and try out a new skill – subversive cross stitch, anyone? Learn to mend things and make them last. On a grey day, make breakfast in bed and tell a story. There’s comfort to be had in The Simple Things.
