I hope you've enjoyed the summer (or winter, if you're in the southern hemisphere) and are looking forward to getting the kids back to school.
Here, we've had a couple of really nice months of warm, sunny weather, which makes a huge change - I've lived in Scotland for 19 years and this is the first summer we've had in all that time. No, really, I'm not joking - my next door neighbour who is 40 and has lived here all his life tells me this is the first Scottish summer he's had. If he wants some sun he has to drive south of Hadrian's Wall or get a flight to catch a few rays. The things we have to do to get a mild suntan...
Anyway, now that the kids are back to school you'll no doubt have some time to spare to throw yourself into a good book or three.
