Whether it’s white or not, will depend on the Weather Gods, it will be cold and we will be here.
We might even break into some Sound of Music renditions as well as Christmas Carols… Yes, it is Salzburg!
I’m looking forward to reliving my most favourite Christmas experience with Boo.
Looking forward to Gluwein (mulled wine), pretzels and gingerbread as we explore the Christmas Markets
Searching amongst all the traditional decoration treasures to fill our home in future years.
And collecting all the treats for a traditional buntatella for my little Miss to enjoy
To make it real, we have airline tickets and are planning our trek from Paris via Berlin and Munich to Salzburg followed by some skiing.
And because they’re envious and want to spend another Christmas in Salzburg, my parents are flying into Munich a few days before Christmas to spend it with us
My rug in the lounge room was beginning to look a bit shabby. I bought it when I lived in the Middle East, a silk blend Persian purchased at some road side markets in the middle of the desert, somewhere at the back of Sharjah. It had endured a teething puppy (the evidence carefully hidden under the TV unit for the past 8+ years). It has weathered the abuse of a small child for the past 7+ years though mostly cleaned up well. Suffice to say it was well and truly in need of replacing… sentimental value was the reason it stayed!
It’s much darker and with more red than I had been expecting but now it’s been in the room a few days, I really, really like it. Though oo.com.au do have a “No Questions Asked Money Back Policy” if you do change your mind about your order.
Postage was super speedy. I would have received the rug 4 days from the order date on a Friday (to Perth), had I been home when the delivery guy came, and then if the consignment number wasn’t illegible, and then if the re-delivery guy had left it as per instructions… but that’s a whole other story, and not the fault of oo.com.au!
oo.com.au sells almost everything. I’ve bought a few things now and find their prices and postage very reasonable.

Do you ever feel that you want to run away from everything?
In the past, before Boo came along, when everything felt same-same, I could run away. The country, Europe, Abu Dhabi… A change of scenery, people, places, life.
Don’t get me wrong, if I was to run away, I’d pack up Boo and bring her with me. I wouldn’t run away from her EVER! Problem is I couldn’t bring myself to uproot her now without a damn good reason… my rut is not a good reason! Two years ago maybe but now I couldn’t.
My feet are itching. I wonder whether a white Christmas in Europe will relieve the itch or make it worse? A house move might dig me out of the ditch? Maybe a job move?
Hmmm… Kuala Lumpur is only 5 hours away with a job still on offer. Or maybe I’ll just send off this job application and stay in Perth…
I love receiving flowers, and having fresh flowers in the house. So I was overjoyed when these lovelyInterflora flowers were delivered to my doorstep, with a card “Dear Mummy, I love you very much. Love Boo xxxx”
The last couple of years on Mothers Day, Boo has given me a bunch of chrysanthemums. I drive her around the corner, hand over the cash, she jumps out the car and selects the bunch she wants from the elderly Italian lady who still has an inner suburbs market garden. Boo returns to the car beaming with pride as she hands over the flowers and wishes me Happy Mother’s Day.
This year she hit the jackpot, and with the assistance of Interflora she has gifted (in her words) “Way more beautiful flowers, and with a lovely vase.” I have to agree… to be honest I am truly not a fan of chrysanthemums! Next year, I might just hand over my credit card and place her in front of the Interflora website
You still have plenty of time to show your mum she means the world to you with flowers from Interflora. I guarantee she’ll love them.
