Brrrrrrrr it's absolutely freezing outside! I do have to admit though- I love the frosty mornings they are refreshing when you have to walk to work. The nights are dark now at 5 in the afternoon so I've got my candles out to make things snug. However, I got used to it being dark early in Africa as they don't have the variation like we do in the summer, it's the same all year round.
At the moment we are doing up a house which hasn't been lived in properly for the past 10 years and managed to get one bedroom completed. The rooms style is monochrome, with a base wall in blackboard paint which is fun. I have injected colour with bright and bold accessories.
