14 February 2012

a short interlude

.
beg your pardons, I have been away from my blog for a bit. The combination of illness, cold weather and work have all jumbled together into a big soup of February misery. Weekends have mostly been spent under four or five blankets, eating baked beans and watching Eastenders on iPlayer. I know, pitiful isn't it.

these pictures are from a few weeks back actually when we had a beautiful frost. We have since then had snow, twice! I did intend to show you some pictures of that but for technical reasons {I forgot I downloaded them at work} so I'll show you them later.


Happy Valentines day, I hope you all have lovely evenings and keep warm {nudge nudge, wink wink}
More posts coming up, but they might be a bit sporadic...bear with me, its nearly March and I will have thawed out by then.

Stunning photos as always :-) I ache for some frost and snow, typical since we left Ireland for Australia they've had snow almost every year!

Everyone seems to be getting sick lately. I hope you feel better, and have a happy Valentine's Day. :)

so pretty... it's summer here, but it's been COLD!! Weird and cold... It's usually baking hot here in Australia at this time of your, but becasue of the El Nina weather system, it's been wet wet wet and cold... Not enough swimming time!

beautiful pictures... I think it's important to hide under blankets and retreat a little during these cold, dark, winter months and regenerate ourselves for the Springtime :-)

Ugh!!! isn't this time of year horrible? I'm totally with you stay under the blankets though I was told a little rhyme today that may give you something to look forward to
"Hooray hooray the 1st of May outdoor sex begins today" (I'm sure that includes camper vans)
I know totally naughty but it brightened up my day I can tell you! ;)

ALL ABOUT CHOCOLATE CREATIVE... said...

I can only say hang in there, I know the feeling of Winter blues very well, i am from Canary Islands, but leave not far from you guys in Peckham. Suffer from SAD each year, I cope as well as I can, a lot of sleeping, of course feel guilty about it, but has to be done, hot drinks, comfort food, walks when sun is out, and curl up with my cat. So get better soon we will all feel better soon. Marga

Lovely photos! Jack Frost always makes me want to grab my camera and look at plants up close, just as your husband has been doing :)

I think a bit hibernation/coccooning is a good idea in winter, especially if you've been under the weather, as it were. :) Lovely pics.

Lisa said...

Hi Artemis..even the most ardent of bloggers deserves a rest from blogging from time to time especially when the weather has been oh so cold:)

In Poland, the winter is similar to that of the book "Muminki" Tove Jansson. With best wishes
