This week Carolyn, mum and I had a wonderful trip through the countryside - out of the city and into rural life.
Setting off out of the city was hectic but once we dodged cars, cows, donkeys and carts the country lanes were stunning. We whizzed around absorbing Albanian farming life.
It got extremely cold and dusk fell quickly. So we got home quickly to a roaring fire and hot coffee.
Today, the temperatures have started to drop dramatically, especially at night. So with no central heating, its time to get those electric blankets out and keep the fire stoked up!
