October has been a busy month (and not just because of Samhain and my birthday) – I had the absolute honour and pleasure of giving a talk to a full house at Witchfest in Brighton last month. This is a fantastic event and my thanks go to all those that organise it and to everyone that turned up to listen to my waffle.
The weather is most definitely autumnal and the leaves are showing their beautiful colours, although to be honest it is wet and soggy here in the UK today.
