Cold for Christmas

 
Christmas is soon over, and I spent it watching Love, Actually over (and over) again and I had my share of tv dramas too. I love watching huge BBC productions with characters in big dresses and repressed manners, like Sense and Sensibility. The olden days makes good tv, and they are still modern.

As my daughter says: First there were the ape people, then came the olden days.


 
We have spent a lot of time indoors, as is it unusually cold at the moment. Even for polar bears like ourselves.

Maybe the Gulf Stream is on holiday as well?

 
But what does indoors matters when you have a monster size Barbie Castle to explore? Feel a bit guilty for introducing such a gigantic peace of plastic into the house, but a second hand plastic peace must be better than a new plastic peace, at least.

 
We've eaten traditional Christmas dishes, and I'm not even gonnu try to translate them into English, as I assume they will seem very odd for others than the northerners.

Playing with a loving granddad is a general classic, though.

Don't feel guilty about the Barbie castle. I am so pleased you ended up with it. Although how it got from my house to your house is my guess! ;) All I know is that my daughter had endless hours playing with it and now your lovely daughters can too.

Thank you for such beautiful photos too - both indoors, outdoors and of Granddad.

Love Actually is one of my favourite films! Makes me homesick though.
