winter days

it hasn't been very cold the last few weeks but it was raining way too much and it seems like everyone has a cold.  trying to eat lots of vegetables and also made a kind of syrup with ginger, lemon and honey... spend a lot of evenings inside, watching carnivale.  brilliant series! so sad it's over now...

christmas is a-comin'

we don't own much xmas decoration, but the tree is an old time favourite that we used to sell in our shop. and that little snow man was a present from sophie today, so so nice. wish we had more of these urpo & turpo cards to send to all of our friends, but this way everyone gets to see it anyway...

run away with me
