Happy Holidays!

Photobucket
Apologies for my delayed Christmas post: it has been a busy couple of weeks with much to report!

Traveller has just recently returned from a week's holiday in Belgium and Germany where she caught up with old friends, sampled the local delicacies {namely Gl├╝hwein} and saw many beautiful sights.

But first, without further delay, T hopes that you had a very jolly Christmas and that you will enjoy the upcoming celebrations to welcome in 2011.
Can you believe it? T can't!

It has been a little chilly in England and before all the lovely snow melted, T and RF decided to head to Hampstead Heath to take some pictures...
It was so pretty up there...and a little slippery!

Can you spot T's lovely braces?

Should only be three weeks to go!

Traveller is ready...

The Big Freeze.

You are probably aware that the weather these days seems to be a little out-of-control.

It seems that facebook status updates are about little else...

We are being indundated with snow, freezing temperatures, rain and T even read today that South Australia is battling a plague of locusts!

Unusual!

What is Traveller thankful for?

Despite having to wear thermals and woolly socks to bed whilst gripping a hot-water bottle with icy fingers, T remains upbeat. This is quite possibly due to the frequent use of her very own fireplace!

This evening was spent drinking mulled wine {provided by lovely flatmates}, eating yummy cheese and relaxing in front of a toasty fire.

The negatives?
The flames seem to lure Traveller into a very unproductive bliss-coma; T's washing basket is very full, her room is increasingly messy and her list of administration chores is growing wildly out-of-control, not to mention that she hasn't blogged in a while!

Miraculously, the fireplace hasn't yet affected her exercise regime which is lucky because Traveller certainly seems to be eating in preparation for hibernation!
{those three-course hot school meals really aren't helpful!}

Fireplaces are a definite novelty for this sun-worshipping Aussie and they (almost) make the short days and freezing temperatures of the UK seem worth it at this time of year!
