May has arrived and we are in the 5th month of this year already. As much as I say it over and over again, I still can't believe how quickly this year has flown by! Autumn has arrived and now we get to say hello to brown and golden leaves, crisp and cool morning air and clear skies. It's such a wonderful time of the year - so soak up the remaining sunlight and prepare yourself to buckle down for the long winter ahead! To all our Saffa readers, have a great Freedom Day tomorrow and make the most of the long weekend ahead!! Download the calendar here.
