The snow is still coming down fast here in Baku. I’m sure I’ve mentioned how much I hate the cold white stuff. We have the threat of a snow day from school tomorrow to fill me with dread. Great. So it feels like a Rainbow square kind of day. Some colour in the middle of…… Continue reading Its a rainbow sort of day.
It is freezing here in Baku. A lot of snow came down over night with more forecast during the week. I’m sure I’ve mentioned before, I really hate snow. It did get out and practise what we learned in photography class last week though. Then I got cold so I went in and took photos of…… Continue reading Rolling rolling rolling along.
I woke up with a killer headache after a brilliant day/night. Started at Hard Rock ended up at a Lebonese restaurant for end of the night munchies. It started snowing last night so this morning Baku was under a blanket of the crappy whiet stuff. This wouldnt have been too bad had I not signed…… Continue reading Snow & cupcakes.
This morning sucked. Running with a 26 mph wind belting you in the face while its -3 is not ideal conditions for training. It was cold and miserable. I don’t really want to repeat it for a while.

The pattern is was a free Ravelry download which is now available on web archive. The link to the…… Continue reading New favourite square.
Last night was a good night. We were at the work New Year (old Russian new year) party at the Fairmont in the Baku Flame Towers. Good food, entertainment, well stocked open bar and a fair bit of dancing. Its been a while since hubbys company has had something that was actually a good night…… Continue reading Turkey dinners and the bobble stitch.
The kids were very excited when it started to snow last night they went to bed dreaming of waking up to a Baku snow day. Much to my delight and their dismay we woke up to a chilly temperature but no snow. That plus the fact that one of my best mates gets ridiculously excited…… Continue reading Snowflakes and photography.
Earlier blog today because its hubby has a work event for us to attend so I thought I had better get the square done before we go. I went for a run today with Liz and the rescue dog that is currently living in her house (much to the displeasure of her cats). Poor little…… Continue reading Sunflowers and running with a dog
Today was a long day! I didn’t sleep much because I drank a bottle of wine while I spent 3 hours on the phone to my dad and didn’t hang up until after 1am.
