Winter is coming. The chill is in the air and dark is starting to dominate light.
Our thatched roof is dented inwards from the strength of the wind and leaks are starting to appear.
I helped Mother on the field today, just to get out of the dark house and keep warm.
Dinner was barley porridge as usual but Mother made the effort to make it hot.
- quoted from peasant girl by nobleman Adam Forwin
