January things

snowy tree by kate bailward

Ah, January. You and your cold weather and bright sunshine which disappears at the drop of a (windily-removed) hat. Funny how a month which is noted for being all about new starts can be so damn disinclining towards the same. Drinking copious cups of tea while curled up with a good book seem so much more inviting than going outside and doing things. Unless, of course, the things to do involve playing in the snow – but this year Etna hasn’t been too obliging on that front so far. There’s some forecast for this weekend, though, so fingers crossed …

On a more exciting note, Driving Like a Maniac featured recently on the Ville in Italia list of the Top 15 Italian Lifestyle Blogs – hooray! So if you’ve come here from there: welcome. It’s lovely to see you. If you’re wondering where to start, then I suggest heading to the Best Of DLaM page. And the old hands? Well, you can check out some of the other great bloggers on the list. Just don’t forget to come back here afterwards for a cup of tea and a chat.

Alla prossima!

    I like the tree trunk picture, Kate. :-) Do you happen to know what sort of tree it is?

  4. Thanks Krista! I don’t know for sure, but it looks to me like a type of birch: https://www.google.co.uk/search?q=birch&espv=210&es_sm=119&source=lnms&tbm=isch&sa=X&ei=NbjnUu6fF4G2yAO2uYDgCQ&ved=0CAkQ_AUoAQ&biw=1023&bih=679

    I’m more than happy to be proved wrong by anyone who knows better, though. :)
