It is good news, worthy of all acceptation; and yet not too good to be true.

Helsinki, 0 degrees

Sometimes the news of the world can make you awfully happy! Like today, when I heard of two good pieces of news coming from the UK. Firstly, the first of its kind, a Moomin shop, was opened yesterday in Covent Garden in London by the niece of Tove Jansson (the author behind the Moomin books)! Yey, do you know these Finnish cartoon characters? If you don't, it's about time you do!

The other piece of news that made me glad today was this delightful lady from Swansea who had decorated her ceiling according to the Christmas season. This kind of exaggerating is adorable, don't you think? If somebody truly loves Christmas, why not let it show?
In total she has 1 700 Christmas balls hanging from her roof, collected from all over the world!
