Now that autumn started, life is getting slightly more difficult. With the cold and rain more works and responsibilities come for us women. In the courtyard the soil turns into mud and gets really dirty, even if one drop of rain falls. Every time someone goes out, he brings in all the dirt from just outside the door. The room is the only place that is for us only, so I try to keep it as cosy as I can. I try to re-enact my house back in my home country in this room. It is very difficult to do that but keeping it clean helps me keep imagining what I need to imagine. With the rain and the cold though it is impossible. Every twenty minutes I have to clean. If the kids get out, I wait inside the room with a broom in hand to clean the moment they enter.
