There’s no denying that I love winter. I was born on the 6th of December on a cold winters morning, so it must run through my veins. I really dislike when people say that it’s impossible that I love winter and can’t stand summer as there’s part tropical blood running through my veins. But if you historically do the math, I’m not a part tropical child as my ancestors where South African slaves brought to Suriname. So I have South African and Dutch blood running through my veins, therefore I must like the cold .. I’m babbling, must be the heath 😉
I do start winter prepping in July, I can’t help it. I find nothing better to do than making Christmas garlands on a hot summers day over a tall glass of Pimms. I also start to get the house winter-proof. It’s cold here, we need lots of blankest and cosy nooks where we can curl up. The house was not build for central heating so we need to burn fires and wear lots of layers.
I’ve got myself a rattan chair with a sheepskin rug from Bloomingville for the living room. I’ve got them both on Bol.com and they are super comfortable. Obviously I haven’t sat it in myself as it was claimed by our new furry friend, Pompelmoose, a 11 week old kitten who’s as cute as Moose on a rattan chair.
Look at them, don’t they make a lovely trio?
