In need of a little break...

Somehow the days just don't seem to have enough hours at the moment, and I feel like I'm not getting anything done at all. I'm so in need of a holiday, of a change of scene, a few days to lean back and relax. Luckily, that's just what I have ahead of me, and I'm so looking forward to visiting Christmas markets, drinking mulled wine and hot chocolate, eating cakes, and taking lots of pictures in lovely Salzburg. And spending the whole day painting, without having to constantly run away to do a thousand other things while the paint dries. Hopefully, I'll learn some new watercolour techniques, get at least one decent painting done, find lots of inspiration, and meet some nice people. It's really just what I need right now :)

And hopefully, there'll be a few snowflakes too. It's been snowing a lot up in the mountains these last few days, but unfortunately, down here, we've only had lots of rain and wind, and the temperatures, well, it feels more like early spring than winter... It's only the Christmas lights and decorations, and all the Christmas markets that remind me of the season. But I keep hoping for that white Christmas :)

I'll be back in a week, with my batteries recharged, and looking forward to keeping up and in touch again with everyone. Have a wonderful week!


  1. Oooh, how fabulous. I hope you have a simply wonderful time, and that you get a few snow falls along the way. Say hello to Herr Mozart if you see him - he knows I'm a big fan. And so, to wish you Christmas joy on your way, here's a little silliness for you...

    See you in a week or so!

  2. Oh my Nigel, you've been quick! Have a wonderful week too!

  3. I hope you have a wonderful break and come back all refreshed. We're finally settled in down in Florida, but we're packing and taking off again, but this time to Disney World for most of the week. Thanks for your comment on my hat. I really wish I could have bought it, but it was way too expensive.

  4. Have a wonderful holiday, photos of the snow are just gorgeous
