From rainy September to sunny October, doesn’t it sometimes feel like time’s flying? Well, a lot has been going on.

For a few days in June, I was a tourist guide for my cousin from Australia and the task was not hard at all – there are so many pretty spots around the country worth visiting.

A quick update on how we’re spending this autumn so far. Well, Mendi is growing up fast and Oto is still as playful as ever, they’re such a funny pair of tails. We’re trying to spend our days outside as much as we can, before all the leaves will fall off and it will get colder – though heaps of leaves can be a lot of fun too. Today we spent the afternoon visiting our neighbours goats …
