The cold has arrived! As much as I wanted to pretend it's not the case, it's time to get the winter clothes from storage (i.e. from the boxes under the bed)... (sigh). The chunky jumpers, warm boots, coats, gloves and scarves need to come out, and the summer dresses, tops and sandals (which hardly got any real use) need to go in the boxes...

It's not all bad, though... Christmas is about 2 months away, and for me, it's what makes the winter months a bit more bearable. Not so much for Christmas eve/day itself, but because of the "spirit" around the preceding weeks and months, the lights and decorations everywhere. Of course, that fact that we get a few days off work also helps :P. And, who knows, we might even get a little bit of snow (hopefully not too much). And, then we have the January sales to look forward too ;)

Let's hope the spending review and the general belt tightening will not dampen our spirits too much...


  1. Hi B,

    Hopefully I will get a job by then to really appreciate the sales. Until then fingers crossed for me. You are so right it is cold, but I love it getting darker sooner. Why don't we hibernate???? I could totally sleep for 5 months LOL Lots of love Nads xx

  2. Hey Nads,

    Yep, I agree, wouldn't mind hibernating and waking up when the birds are singing :). Keeping me fingers and toes crossed for you. ;)xx

  3. Thanks B, actually something is in the pipeline. Will discuss all when I next see you :) I'm happy happy happy xxx
