~a chill~

although there was no frost this morning there is a wonderful chill in the air
i was awake with the birds this morning, i have not been sleeping properly this week so spending the darkest hours listening to the radio or my ipod.
this morning i decided to go with the flow and get up early.
the sky is that pale washed out blue of autumn and its a day to wear a coat after all these months without.
today we are off to a vintage steam rally at the site of the new forest show, a mile outside of the village, with the promise of static steam engines, classic cars, dog show, music, craft stalls, a working craft section and indian village (which i am intrigued to hear about!)
the great equinox de-clutter continues.
yesterday i bought the last of the storage boxes needed to contain things-to stop them spilling over into the surrounding shelves.
the previous day we moved my big, heavy desk into the temporary, indoor girl cave and swampy started to get serious in his own 'man cave'.
tomorrow we have no plans so that will be the big day to really get organised.
i want this final push so that i can actually get at my desk and start work on the things that are filling my head-i have started to craft little felt acorns, pumpkins and toadstool to turn into pendants laced onto ribbon but at the moment i cannot even get in the room let alone sit and be creative!
we also looked at carpet yesterday-i could think of a lot better things to do but we are trying to have carpet in our living room by yule-at the moment our living room floor is made up of 1970's 'marley' tiles-horrible hard, cold things which does nothing to make our room feel cosy.
there are lots of bits and bobs we need besides the carpet...an armchair, more shelves (thinking ahead to house the continual outpouring of my book addiction)
i cannot post any pictures right now as my little card reader thing has died so until i replace it i will have to get swampy to download and pas son photos...and i have so many!!!
