An in­tro­duc­tion to Let’s Talk

It’s all chang­ing. You may have no­ticed what is go­ing on around you. Noth­ing new, just the time of the year. The au­tumn is upon us and sadly it is of­ten a time when many get a lit­tle down.

It won’t be long, just a cou­ple of weeks, until we do that uniquely Bri­tish thing and ‘al­ter the clocks’.

‘Spring for­ward and fall back’, re­mem­ber how we were all taught that in our school­days?

Well, we may at the end of the month gain an ex­tra hour in bed on a Sun­day morn­ing, but of course it means that be­fore we know it, those of us leav­ing work around 5.30pm will be trav­el­ling home in the dark.

And dur­ing the lighter times, we may well be spend­ing lots of hours sweep­ing away piles of leaves as they fall from the trees.

And, of course, the shops will start to fill with Christ­mas goods (ac­tu­ally many have al­ready) which of­ten also helps to get us a lit­tle de­pressed.

Cer­tainly those days of the sum­mer heat­wave seem a long, long time ago.

But rather than wal­low in ‘doesn’t time fly’ we should all look for­ward and be pos­i­tive.

We don’t need that much of an ex­cuse for a get-to­gether af­ter all.

There’s Novem­ber 5 and fire­works just around the cor­ner, a great ex­cuse to wrap up warm, get out­side, en­joy some soup and cel­e­brate with friends.

Then comes the big one, Christ­mas. I don’t care how grumpy or mean you are, you can­not fail to get wrapped up in the fes­tive spirit.

So here at Let’s Talk we are mak­ing it our aim to be op­ti­mistic and to stay pos­i­tive by bring you top-class fea­tures and all your reg­u­lar reads as we tackle the au­tumn and win­ter to­gether.

You can start to feel warmer just by thumb­ing through the pages of this is­sue as all your favourites are there ... to­gether with a few sur­prises.
