baby, it's cold outside

It's been -26°C or colder today so I have definitely not been eager to go outside. And if it stays like this or gets colder I'm going to have plenty of days staying inside, maybe sitting in front of the fireplace. Perfect time to sort out photos and blog posts, then!

This is as much of a Christmas post I'm going to gather together. I didn't take too many photos or get too many presents (mainly Moomin mugs to my ever-growing collection, haha!), but I did eat too much. I'm also old-fashioned and actually celebrate Christmas at least until Epiphany and have therefore still been listening to Christmas songs today. My mum's still into listening to Christmas songs and carols as well (which is good), as long as it's not the same Elvis CD that I could play for weeks. And we're not taking the decorations down until the 13th, so I can lull myself into the belief that it's definitely still Christmas. And I definitely still can eat all the ham (side note: I'm the only one in my family that eats ham at the moment and have had a 3kg ham to eat by myself..), chocolate, gingerbread and sweets. Please, don't break my little Christmas bubble, I don't want it to end yet.

Although, if it does stay this cold, I might start seriously considering those flights to somewhere sunny I've been looking at!

-26C is freaking cold and I don't blame you for thinking of somewhere sunny. We're at -3C the lowest and we're already thinking of going somewhere sunny. Lucky for us we're heading back to Malaysia end of this month to vista my family for 3 weeks so I can't complain. :-)

The pictures are so beautiful!! I can't believe how cold it is, it blows my mind. I find it cold if it is below 20 degrees.

Gail J said...

I am not going to lie, but it looks so cold in where you are! I would probably stay inside the house like a bear hibernating itself lol I love those deco and cookies <3

Lis C said...

Oh my gosh, that sounds so cold. I mean, I can't exactly know since I live in Texas lol It never snows here, but it does look lovely. I've never seen/heard of that lemonade and now I must seek it out.

Jenna Opsahl said...

Wait what??? I didn't even know the world could be so cold. STAY INSIDE NEVER LEAVE YOUR HOME. But also that rose lemonade looks amazing so maybe leave to go get more of that haha.

Happy New Year :)
