Baby Its Cold Outside.....

its been freezing lately!! probably not as cold as it would get in the northern hemisphere but its definetely cold for us Aussies. Last week Sydney had the coldest morning in 20years!

I dont think we know how to manage Winter....we certainly dont plan for it and always assume we have a short mild winter season but then suddenly its here and everyone is complaining about how cold it is! Brrrr....

Today I went shopping for warm casual clothes as next Sunday im off to Kangaroo Valley for 4 days on a Personal Effectiveness program with work. Its all outdoor activites, bushwalking, sleeping in cabins - basically stuff I dont normally do.
I am so Not an outdoor kinda gal...this should be an experience! Can I take my blowdrier?
My pics seem kind of blury but here are some Winter ATCs I made for an Australian ATC club swap....
Big Happy Birthday cheer to my good friend Melissa for tommorow - have a FAB day sweet!!

    A personal effectiveness program, in the middle of Winter?! Insane! I bet it's pretty, there is something very seductive about a bare Winter horizon. But not the ice and frost that accompanies it *shiver*

    Have a wonderful time - take lots of coats (that would be effective planning, at least!)!

  3. Hi Anastasia !
    Thanks for your lovelly ATC (swap), your blog is very interesting to read !
    All the best,

  4. We could use some Aussie chill here in Texas! Love the new cards!

    Hahahaha! I find it so hard to imagine your country, of all places, being that cold. Certainly when it's summertime here. Although its been a very wet summer. Keep warm my darling!

    It's been raining almost everyday here in Manchester, it's quite cold and I still wear my jacket. We haven't seen summer yet, and it's already end-July :( -anyway, thank goodness we haven't had floods.

    Sorry about the cold weather there, hope you're keeping warm. Also this work training you're going to sounds fun, especially for staying in cabins -hope there's a lovely warm fire waiting for you.

  10. One of my best friends lives in Sydney and she has been talking about how cold it is there. She mentions being "rugged up" which is such a cute term but not one that we say here.

    I hope you are able to stay warm and that you get to carry your hair dryer with you to the conference!

  11. it is very odd for me to think that it is freezing over there now and that you are buying warm clothes :)
    kangaroo valley sounds fun. I'm not a particularly outdoor girl in the sense that I don't do anything radical sports or something similar but I love walking and hiking and camping.

  12. Oh - Love, love, love those atc's! They'd make wonderful christmas cards!

  13. i am sending you some of this florida heat and sunshine too... we have lots and lots to spare!! giggling about the program because i am the same way. very much NOT a camper! i like my fluffy bed thanks! :)


Thanks for stopping by and taking time to comment!! i really appreciate it!
