Winter is here

I hate Winter. I loathe it. I have blogged about my hate for Winter a few years back and yeah I know I shouldn’t dwell on the negative stuff but…maaaaan I hate the cold.

My whole wardrobe changes, everyone is sick (I’ve just spent the weekend in bed sick with some funky bug), the heater is on all the time, I can’t dry clothes on the line outside because it takes days to dry, whinge whine & add more carry on here.

So..instead let me turn my attention to my fab Summer wardrobe. I just get all jealous when I see pics on Instagram of my fellow gorgeous vintage loving gals in the northern parts of the world with sleeveless this and short sleeved that. I lust for the warm air and it just makes me so happy for them but then I look out the window and brrrrrrr.

Oh well…June the start of Winter in Australia. 3 months (maybe 4 months) of this shit and then we hit spring and my flowers will bloom and the earth will warm up and the days will grow longer and warmer air temperatures..ahhhhh.

Skirt handmade by me. The fabric has a Christmas tree theme.

Well that was my Summer 2015/2016, for those readers in the northern hemisphere I hope you really enjoy the sunshine and warm air. I have the heater on and a persistent cough. Hmmm

Cheers
