It's been so cold the past few days, winter is definitely here and while I enjoy the coziness of being indoors on a frosty blustery day, I hate having to go out and end up with my feet freezing...I hate having cold feet!
I know I'm a day late but I wanted to wish a Happy Thanksgiving to all who celebrate at this time of year. I want to give thanks to all of you who read this blog, support the little birds and provide me with such great inspiration day in, day out.
It's feeling increasingly Christmassy over here in London. All of the shops have been festooned with decorations and the elaborate window displays are starting to appear (I'm looking forward to Selfridges and Harvey Nichols....always a treat). Yesterday felt like the first real wintery weekend so far and I'm getting that little tingle of holiday anticipation what with all of the magazines writing their enticing gift guides. It's the decoration pages that I most enjoy though, probably because they're filled with sparkly birds...
I love writing letters...I love receiving letters even more (especially when they're non-bill related). There's something lovely about getting a handwritten note in the post and writing with an old fashioned fountain pen is just about one of my favourite things to do. My handwriting used to be atrocious and since I abandoned all hope of ever writing both joined up and legible words it's become a lot neater. What with all of the recession doom and gloom it seems like letter writing might bring some cheer to the impending morning post !
