♥ Moving to another country four and a half weeks before Christmas
♥ Spending several weeks searching for, cleaning and furnishing a new home
♥ Living a city where there palm trees line the streets and residents legitimately wear flip-flops and sunglasses in late December
♥ Being away from friends and family
♥ A serious lack of mince pies in California*
At the weekend we took part in a ’12 Bars of Christmas’ crawl and as it’s a mandatory part of the UK versions of the crawls I’ve been on, I decided to don a Christmas jumper for the occasion to help me get in the spirit. This one is a recycled number from last year – when packing up my wardrobe to move abroad, taking more than one novelty jumper was fairly low down on my priority list.
The upside of a warm climate in December means I didn’t need to wear tights with this outfit, which is definitely a plus point. Another plus is that our friends L & K are spending Christmas with us and are arriving tonight! We’re planning on cooking a traditional Christmas dinner with all the trimmings, followed by lots of cheese, board games and Christmas films – ‘Christmassy’, here I come…
Wishing you a very Merry Christmas from San Francisco!
*Seriously, where are they hiding them all!?
