Long time, no speak

What with one thing and another, it’s been quite a while since I’ve been on here. Family issues coupled with the workload of a Master’s have resulted in a pretty stressful autumn, but things are on the mend. It’s the first time in about 10 years that we’ve had a Christmas in Greece, and it’s nice to rediscover the country at this time of year – the smell of bonfires is everywhere, and there’s such a lovely greenness to the landscape, compared with the harsh yellows of the summer. I’ve been regretting leaving my camera behind, but logistically I just didn’t have the space. So phone pictures it is! Luckily my phone seems to produce quite good quality photos… We’re meant to be making a traditional Vasilopita tomorrow (a Greek New Year’s cake), so will try & keep a note of the recipe – I have a few I’ve been meaning to upload, as well as other bits & pieces, so will do my best to find the time. But the little voice in my head keeps telling me that I should be working on my PhD application instead… *sigh* Never enough time. Happy 2013 🙂

 

Currently…

Listening to: Imagine Dragons – Night Visions

 

Reading: Vasilis Gourogiannis, Το ασημόχορτο ανθίζει, and my new favourite blog, Esme & the Laneway (http://esmeandthelaneway.blogspot.co.uk/)

Obsessing over: vintage dresses & accessories; my PhD project; Esme & the Laneway; women’s rights; oranges.
