getting my good cheer on

Hello, you darlings – I’ve missed you terribly.

Since we last spoke, the days have shortened and the nights have acquired a fierce bite. My knuckles are red and roughened from night-time bike rides without mittens.

To stay warm and cheery I’ve been winter woollening.

And enjoying quick afternoon cuppas in the company of timeless beauties.

And reinstating correspondence hour, like every cultivated lady should.

Did I mention I’ve missed you? I’ll be back tomorrow — I can’t wait.
