When the Air Hurts Your Face

Posted on

We’re back from Finland and after getting used to how -20 degrees feels on your face it felt pretty tropical when we stepped out of the plane here in Edinburgh! I was really glad we got to experience a really cold spell though as it was quite an exotic thing for Matthew and I’m constantly missing the four distinctive seasons we get in Finland.

As I might’ve mentioned a few times here in the blog as well, I was really looking forward to some snow and a white Christmas on our holiday. I didn’t have to wait for long as it started snowing the minute we stepped out of the airport in Helsinki!

Never thought I’d say this, but I miss snow. I miss when it’s really cold and your eyelashes freeze. I miss being able to walk on the ice in the winter sun. I miss skiing. I even miss a good blizzard.

Happy New Year 2014!!!

Hope you’ve all had the chance to have a relaxing holiday and recharge your batteries for the new year. I’ve had a great (and extremely lazy) two weeks off work – which I had to pay for this morning when I dragged myself out of bed at 8 am only to spend the entire day in a zombiesque state. The fact that it’s Monday and it’s been raining the whole day didn’t make things better. Today is apparently the most depressing day of the year – totally agree!!
