Seriously, November

I feel like a broken record but I can’t believe it is November already! Seems like just yesterday we were boarding our flight to London, excited for two whole months of traveling. Now, those months are over – did they even really happen?! I mean, we have the photos and souvenirs – oh god, so many souvenirs – but it doesn’t feel real. Since being thrust back into reality, I’ve somehow managed to survive the blur that has been July, August, September and October; to land on November’s doorstep wondering how the heck I got here.

It is supposed to be Springtime in the land down under, but lately it has felt more like Autumn and some days I feel like I’ve gone back in time to Winter instead. I thought Australia was supposed to be sunny and warm?!

But with November comes the start of the festive season, which I am beyond excited about. Call me sad, but I have already started planning Christmas presents – I mean, I need to get on top of things early so that my well-planned and heartfelt purchases (read: online shopping) make it to my family in time for the arrival of old St Nick.

The shops have been selling Christmas wares for a while now, and it won’t be long before the whole city is covered in a Christmas haze; frustrated shoppers pounding the pavement; stores enticing them with great savings and Christmas sales; carols blasting from the speakers – bring it on, I say!

In the meantime, I am looking forward to a long weekend where I hope to get some sun, eat some good food and see some beautiful sights!

Like this………..but totally not like this.

Anyone else turning Melbourne Cup Day into a long weekend? Getting excited for Christmas yet? When will Summer get here?!
