Just Here For The Scenery

Quench Your Thirst 18

Time to wrestle my self out of that holiday fog and back into reality… NOT. In Sweden we’re blessed with yet another bank holiday on December 6th, which this year happens to fall on a Monday. Nevertheless I thought I’d return to some normalcy…

Partridge In A Pear Tree – Episode 25

So Christmas day came and went and I wasn’t really bothered with it. As a child I used to buy into the magic of it all. Not that Santa ever paid a visit, because growing up in Belgium, I got presents from St Nicolas…

Oh The Weather Outside is Tanking…

But the fire is so delightful. That’s how the Christmas song goes, no? That doesn’t even rhyme! But you get the gist of it. It’s raining a lot here in Stockholm, meanwhile I’m receiving pictures from Canada showing a snow-covered Ottawa, so it’s safe…

Welcome Winter
