Our Martinmas celebrations took place a few days late, due to the very stormy weather last week. Last night, however, was clear, crisp and awfully cold. And magical. We took our little lanterns and joined the other Kindergarten, Class 1 and Class 2 families for a moonlit lantern walk through the school gardens. The teachers had placed lanterns around the gardens and the girls were delighted to find a tableau of fairies dancing round their own tiny lanterns. We came home to a supper of baked potatoes, eaten by candlelight to prolong the warm glow that will sustain us through winter.
