My my days have a new rhythm.
For most of the last 20 years my days have been topped and tailed by Scotrail as I travelled to and from work in Glasgow from my home in Stirling.
Now I have moved into a typical Charentaise house in France, and you’ll see from this photo that one of the main features of the house are the wooden shutters on every window.
So now my day begins with a trip round the house to open all the shutters and welcome in the light. And as the sun sets each evening my day is marked by the “closing of the shutters”.
There is something immensely satisfying about this new rhythm, marking each day with the opening and the closing of the shutters.
