And somehow January merged into February. Usually I like the first month of year. It feels so good to get rid of all the Christmas decoration, sack the Christmas tree and put it all away for the next 11 months. Now a blank page, time to think and make plans for the coming months. But this year was different somehow. My January was blurred, a succession of grey and dull and dark days. After the calm days between the holidays the first weeks of the year hit hard at work with lots of stuff to do and extra hours. Four weeks I was only anticipating our winter vacation in East Tyrol.
And oh it was worth the while!
