Icy Morning...

13th July

This morning I had a scary ice moment. It really didn’t seem icy at all until I hit the bridge going on to the main road in, I saw the car in front of me swerve a bit, so hit my brakes to slow down (not that I was going fast at all!!) and I swerved and crashed into the side of the road. At this point my heart was racing and I didn’t want to drive anymore!! David calmed me down and we made it into work at a snails pace. There was ice everywhere and you could see where people had swerved off the road because of it. When I crashed into the road there was another car in front of me who had done a complete 360° and was facing me, so I let them slowly turn around before moving on.

So that certainly got my heart racing and woke me up for Monday morning. Now off the topic of ice onto the topic of mulled wine. Last week after work, David and I were going to meet his dad for dinner so we decided to pop into a pub for a glass of mulled wine before (David had been there the day before for a friends birthday and had tried the wine then). It was yummy and warm and spicy. I’ve never actually tried it before but always meant to, so on Friday after work it was off to the supermarket for supplies to make our own. Yum! David got the recipe off the internet, and I would post it here, but I’m not sure where he got it from.


Thank you all so much for your kind words about my shop, and for hearting me too. I’ll have a few new things up on Wednesday. I’m trying to pace myself with adding things because it’s coming up to a very very busy period at work, and I’m not sure how much time I’ll have to sew, so, I’m hoping to get a small-ish backlog so I can continually update throughout the busy time.

  13. I was so confused when I read your post at first, then I realized you're in New Zealand >_<
    It's crazy hot in BC Canada right now.
    Love your blog.

  14. gorgeous top! it's so bizarre to hear of icy conditions when it is our summer - even though it is always raining here!

  15. Scary! Glad you're okay. Apparently Dunedin is one of the worst places for ice-related car accidents? I guess the combination of hills and slippery roads makes for dangerous driving.

    And - yum! Mulled wine. There's a little pub down the road from us that does lovely mulled wine (and has a fireplace!), and it's my favourite winter spot.

  16. Eeek! Reading that gave me a lump in my stomach! I'm so glad you're safe. Icy roads scare the daylights out of me, and more often than not I'll take the slow, annoying bus instead of riding in a car.

  20. Icy roads are the #1 thing I dislike most about winter. They're terribly frightening, especially over bridges since they always freeze first. I'm glad you're okay!

    I love this cozy & chic winter ensemble. Your blue top is ridiculously cute :)
