I'm also looking forward to sharing with you all the final results of my home renovation and decoration. Last bits and pieces should be arriving this month.
I'm looking forward to my very first Pascha (Easter) in the new house. Painting eggs, cooking traditional pork and baking an elaborate torte decorated by chocolate Easter eggs. Maybe I will use the 5 day holiday to finally try to master at least one recipe from Gourmet Traveller. I'm not sure if I'm a bad home cook or if the recipes are just too hard and the ingredients far too difficult to source. Plus I'm on the wrong side of my birthday. 5 months away I know, but as September draws closer I get more anxious. You're probably reading this and thinking - crazy woman - and you're probably right. Lock me away (until the birthday passes)
Apart from the seasonal change in colours (and leaves that I now have to sweep twice a week) cold weather brings...
Lots of cups of tea... At the moment I'm obsessed with T2 Sencha Mango. An amazing light and sweet mango green tea.
A desire to decorate the house with flowers to give it a bit of light and brighten the mood.
Every now and then some couch time on a cold Sunday is good for the soul.
Cashmere knee high socks. Need I say more.
Scarves. I can't get enough right now.
