despite all this craze, i did manage to catch a glimpse or two of my christmas cactus ~ we call it 'patience' here, remember?
this is what it looked like ten days ago.
there won't be any blooms left when i go back for christmas
and i'm so grateful for this perfect timing!

i seem to be on the road a lot lately;
but bear with me, there's a reason for these rumblings.
the thing is, as i was telling my dearest friend earlier, that this doesn't feel much like home. there are all these people we need to see and shopping to be done and errands to be run, so that i can't do all the 'homey' things i usually do at the weekends; plus, most of my personal belongings are not here. hubby usually works late to make up for the work he can't do on the computer when he's away and i really, desperately need to stay at home.
i don't want to check my schedule to see if i can squeeze in some saturday afternoon baking; i just want to take my apron out the drawer and get lost somewhere between the flour and the sugar.
my next visit here will be for the christmas holidays;
until then, hubby will be doing all the travelling - not very often though, due to work commitments.

Since Time is not a person we can overtake when he is gone, let us honor him with mirth and cheerfulness of heart while he is passing.
Johann Wolfgang Von Goethe
I'm eighteen years behind in my ironing. There's no use doing it now, it doesn't fit anybody I know

this gave me an idea: why not interview each other? we don't need to be particularly creative or anything; we can do the interview around the contents of the blog- for instance, if a blogger writes mostly about her family, it could be about that. i would definitely like to get to know you better and i wouldn't mind being interviewed.
tell me if you're interested by leaving a comment here and please offer some ideas as well if you have any; could we include a card in the mail, too; something like a low budget swap? would you like to be an interviewee, an interviewer, or preferably both?
oh, do tell!
have a gorgeous november!!!
ps. i've got some mail goodies to show you; i'm expecting a couple more parcels and then you'll see what nice people there are around the globe!
