By all these lovely tokens
September days are here,
With summer’s best of weather
And autumn’s best of cheer.

Helen Hunt Jackson - September
The breezes taste
Of apple peel.
The air is full
Of smells to feel-
Ripe fruit, old footballs,
Burning brush,
New books, erasers,
Chalk, and such.
The bee, his hive,
Well-honeyed hum,
And Mother cuts
Like plates washed clean
With suds, the days
Are polished with
A morning haze.

John Updike, September

An interesting fact about you?

I thought we could all get together and share some interesting facts about each other, perhaps something that nobody else knows.

For me, it is interesting that I have always worked from home, and have never had a job outside of the home (bar a paper round in my teens, of course). This is something that seems odd to some people, but it has always been normal to me.

What about you? Is there anything interesting that we should know?

    I started with working in an office but for the past 15 years have worked in many different types of jobs, most from home.

    I have worked in the UK, France, Nepal, India and Cambodia. I only worked in India and Cambodia for three months however.

    It's cool that you've worked in so many different countries. I guess I could, being self employed, but I have never done it.

    I wasn't paid when I worked in India.
