Who Ordered Snow?

Well we woke up this morning to find that the weather forecasters were right - it had snowed overnight and is still snowing lightly now. Everything looks very wintery and dare I say it - Christmassy! Maybe it's hint that I should let the kids put the tree and decorations up.

So this morning we've been outside to get the horses and donkey some hay and water and also fetch in some logs for the fire. Wood burner lit, outdoor clothes now off and I'm warming through nicely with a hot cup of coffee and debating whether or not to add a dash of Rakia to it just for medicinal purposes!

Tonight I'm having a break from cooking as we're going off to visit my sister in law for pizza and alcohol, it's not often we drink but we do enjoy a good knees up now and again which usually means we play cards, have a laugh and generally put the world to rights over a bottle of vodka! Should be a fun night and she doesn't live far away so it's easy to get home too.

I've taken some photos of our surroundings today but admit that I forgot to take the camera outside with me and only realised after I'd removed my over trousers, coat and gloves so I've cheated and snapped some pics from the upstairs windows for you to have a look at.

The photo's look a bit dark and it's not really like that here today so I'll come back later and try to upload some better ones. Part of the problem could be my ultra slow internet connection!


  1. Hi Suzy,
    Glad you are enjoying the winter here in Bulgaria. Wood burners, you can't beat them!

  2. Thanks Martin. This is our 3rd winter now and each seems to be shorter than the last!
