Racing to the Sun Mini

RACING TO THE SUN BY THE BLOND ZEBRAS

I don’t know if I ever told you, but one of my first real nicknames was Mini. One of my friends created it when I was about 14, because I was basically tiny. The guys were big in comparison, so Mini stuck for a while. And when I was 18, my parents gave me a traditional 18-birthday gift – a drivers licence lessons, plus a fictional car – my favourite. Red MINI Cooper with two white stripes on the hood. Obviously.

CHRISTMAS IN BUDAPEST BY THE BLOND ZEBRAS

If you’ve read this blog for some time, you’ll know that I love Christmas time in all shapes, moods and colours. I hate the cold, but the fairy lights and a hot punch usually make up for it in some way.
