Seasons Greetings – Christmas 2010

Just a very quick post to wish all my readers and subscribers a Happy Holiday Season and all the Best for 2011. At the moment I’m just answering a few outstanding emails then it’s off to start doing some cooking and dessert making in preparation for Christmas day tomorrow!

Here’s  a picture of a snowy scene here in Edinburgh. We still have snow, but thankfully it is not as bad as it was a few weeks ago when I was snowed in.

Below you’ll find a free EBook with resale rights as a little Christmas present from me! Just right click to download and select “Save Target As..” or “Save Link As…”. You can extract the files with winzip or any unzipper program.

I’ve got Cabin Fever

Here in Scotland at the moment it’s been snowing a LOT. Despite the fact that we are located in the same latitude as Moscow, Alaska and Quebec, our winters are typically mild. Thanks to the gulf stream we don’t usually get a lot of snow. This means when we get snow, we are not really prepared for it with snow ploughs, snow tires or enough grit.

For this reason, at the moment it seems like the country has ground to a halt. All the schools have been closed for most of this week, the local supermarket shelves are lacking in fruit and veg and people are generally avoiding going out, especially in their car. Not to mention, the Forth road bridge (a suspension bridge similar to the Golden gate bridge, but smaller) has closed due to snow for the first time in history.

At the moment, one part of me is glad that I run a home business so I don’t have to go out and the other part is feels like I have cabin fever! Most of the time I look out the window it is snowing, raining, hail stoning or sleeting, so I am glad to be in a nice warm house :-) On the other hand I just want to get back to normal life.

Another reason for my boredom may be because I’ve spent a lot of the last couple of days preparing my taxes to send to my accountant. That’s my least favorite work from home task!

It’s taken me a while, but I’ve finally changed my blog from Blogger to WordPress, spurred on by fact that blogger stopped supporting FTP, butdelayed slightly by my vacation in California.

I decided not to import all my previous posts from the last 5 years into WordPress.  Instead they are still available at the same URLs or accessible from my old blog index page.

Please excuse the look of the blog while I tidy up the sidebars and start making regular posts again!
