And when life's like this, home becomes a little haven. Busy mornings followed by quiet afternoons with the children become time to just soak each others company up, play board games, read books, repeat puzzles over and over again, lick the cake mix spoon, trudge the school run backwards and forwards in wellies through wet leaves, and wake bleary eyed children from naps who seem to go into hibernation and would sleep right up to bedtime if you'd let them.
And I feel a little guilty that we're not really "savouring" this season.
Until I realise that actually, that's exactly what we're doing. Cosying up in our little house, protected from the wind and the rain outside is exactly what dark November days are all about.
Making memories doing the stuff of life.
