Autumn fruitcake

Thumbs up for this spell of fine weather: mid-October and I am mowing lawns, clearing barrow loads of fallen leaves. Neighbours, when not appearing on national television, are busy wielding chain saws or hedgecutting. Our shaggy coated ponies will soon resemble yaks. Mrs G. is in one of her baking moods and the homestead reeks of butter and brandy-steeped fruit.
