Something a little different today. When it snowed a couple of weeks ago, I was sure we were going to have a white christmas. What a difference a week can make, as the weather is now far from winter-y. When I was out in the park nearby last week, the weather was so lovely I decided to make some pictures, before everything changes into a winter wonderland. As you can see, at least there were plenty of those holly-like bushes with their red little berries (?), providing a bit of christmas spirit.

With so many books sitting on my shelves unread, I try not to give in immediately every time I see a book I like. However, that doesn't stop my wish list from growing to considerable lengths. Here are five books, new and old, that I wouldn't mind having sitting-pretty on my bookshelf.

I intended to write about the Jonge Harten Theaterfestival (Young Hearts Theatre Festival) in Groningen after I'd seen some performances, but never came round to it... Ah well, better late than never.
Jonge Harten is a theatre festival that's held every year at the end of November in Groningen (up North in the Netherlands). The audience they aim for is students and young people, who want something more than your average trip to the theatre. So all the performances are given by young artists who want to present something new on stage and it ranges from theatre to dance to music. The more experimental performances are followed by discussions afterwards with the performers and directors, to make the performances accesible for everyone. I only saw three of the give-or-take twenty five performances on offer, but left all with a smile on my face.

In winter time, a bit of pampering is always a good idea. Especially when you have luscious products from Lush at your disposal. I love Lush all year round, but especially around Christmas time I always feel the need to get my paws on some things. Since it's cheaper to order from the UK than buy it in store in the Netherlands, I decided to put in an order for some Christmas (and all-year-round) delights.
