I always loved the idea of a winter picnic... walking through the snow, nice hot cup of hot chocolat and delicious cake & snacks. However, I tried it and I must admit it wasn't half as romantic as it may seem... it was freezing.
Still looking for a green fifties coat. Got my Red Riding Hood coat from Dahlia Found

Let me tell you about my friday night pudding club.
After my neighbour's husband passed away last spring I started to invited her for dinner. Now she is coming every friday night for dinner & dessert. For desert we always have pudding from Mona (a dutch pudding company). You can see I also recycle the packaging. It looks so pretty in my pear tree...
enjoy your weekend
ps: At the moment I have no idea what to cook tonight but I got pudding already, lol

This morning in town. You still see some pretty christmas decorations in the shops.
Three years ago I went to the Muesum to see the Russian Legends. It was so pretty.
I did not buy the book but it was on my wishlist. So I was lucky to find it in a bookstore couple of days ago.
I still got my christmas tree but I started to put some of the smaller christmas decoration away.
We are back to normal life... started with the gym, work and school run this morning .
My idea for 2010 is to buy less and to swap more... lets see how that goes.
Really want to see the new movie Somewhere, the new movie from Sofia Coppola.
