Snow time!

I have to admit, most of the year I grumble about living in England and it's blase weather, but recently it's been snowing up a storm and that makes me happy. I like extremes- give me searing hot sunshine or snow flakes galore. It's caused a lot of issues travel wise, but it's nice to think around the country a lot of families are sitting on the sofa together, snowed in, by the fire looking out and watching the snow fall instead of the TV.

Christmas time is coming up and I cannot wait to give out my presents (especially the one I've handmade for my boyfriend...), eat waaay too many chocolates and watch terribly Christmas movies like Home Alone. Then after Christmas come New Years- my favourite time of year, time to wipe that slate and draw plans for the coming year. I'm going into next year blind. Thailand then.....who knows. This terrifies me and exhilarates me at the same time. Just gotta walk into the unknown with courage and optimism. BRING IT ON 2010.

What an Adventure

As some of you may know, I started this 'limbo' blog while I was stuck between finishing university, travelling and getting the career I want- travelling being the main cause of my limbo status! Obviously travelling costs money, and that is an issue these days isn't it.... so I've changed my ideal of 'travelling' from a 6 month around the world extravaganza to a one month adventure in Thailand (until financial conditions improve!), and I'm officially leaving on the 4th of Feb 2010..... and I could not be more excited!

To stoke the fires of anticipation I found these beautiful images via (which is fast becoming my favourite blog out there), these images are from a project called 'Drinking out of the freckled cup' ( which is showcasing "the beauty of people, light, warmth, color, lack of color, skin, touch, mountains, exploration, and most things in between." and one of it's features is travel. Here are my favourites....

Looking Back

Hello everyone, todays blog is dedicated to my amazing grandparents and great grandparents:)

My grandparents came to visit this weekend, but unfortunately I've managed to get ill (again!) so couldn't see them, (they're not well themselves and about to go to a nursing home for a respite so didn't want to give them any nasty bugs!). However I did get to see an incredible scrapbook my grandmother brought to show us. The book is full of photographs that my great grandparents took- I never met my great grandparents, but looking through their images I wish I had. I find it really grounding to look back and see a simpler way of life, and that's exactly what these pictures represent.

Here are some of my favourites, hope you like....
