Hello, my dear strangers!

First of all, Happy New Year to you all. I hope you had a wonderful time celebrating and, even if you didn’t, don’t worry, you’re not the only ones. But, that’s in the past now. 2016 is gone and will never return , for better or for worse. It’s time to take charge and carve out a better tomorrow. I didn’t have the best time either and had a blazing row with my dad, after which I realised that nothing changes unless a person does. Some things we just have to accept, others we have to fight for. This life of ours is 100% our responsibility. Nobody’s coming to rescue us, so we should work on rescuing ourselves… ourselves.

Ok, now that I got that off my chest, it’s time to show you my top 10 December photos. Enjoy!  🙂


My friend’s new kitten. I love this furry creature. I’m capable of spending days just cuddling it.


What’s a month without sushi? Sad-tember. Ok, bad dad jokes aside, this one didn’t really turn out the way I wanted it to, but life is learning and improving. One day, I’ll get it right. Perhaps even perfect.


This has got to be the most festive, brightest, most ornamented house in the city. No wonder the media immediately flocked. My brother and I went there to see the first switching on of the lights and it was spectacular.


Once it was a mighty balloon. Now it’s just a deflated child’s dream, stuck in a tree branch.


I love seeing a basket filled with fruit. It represents health, life and all those good things coming our way. It’s also a beautiful edible ornament.


The holiday spirit virus plagued us as well a couple of weeks ago and we decided to get creative with this handicrafts workshop. The entire dining room table was filled with paper collages, pens, pencils, watercolours, crayons, tapes, scissors, glue, colourful threads and so forth. You’ll see some of the results in one of the following pics.

7The furry creature continues to amaze. Yes, this is how he sleeps. I’m not a big cat person, but this is just adorable.


An impromptu dish I’ve put together for my family. Contains way too many ingredients for a lazy bone like myself to list. Let’s just say I used everything we had in the house. The end result was both visually pleasing and delicious. I’ve named it A Moroccan Circus.


A little bit of magic.


Here’s the most beautiful product of my mum and brother’s combined creativity. At first, we put this gorgeous angel on our Christmas tree, but then we changed our minds and gave it to a little autistic girl as a present.

Well, there you have. I don’t know you, my dear strangers, so I can’t make any explicit wishes, but you know what you want the best, so I wish that all your dreams come true (unless you’re psychopaths who yearn for war) and I hope you have a wonderful 2017.

Best wishes,

Wayward Child (Ana)  🙂
