Hehe. It works for me! SO very Dutch to just stick the words together to make it one!
And yup, winter clothes making thier way out of the boxes around here too.
My boots are back! Man, I love my boots.

Very Dutch... :D You can cheat as long as no one catches you right? ;)

But, yeah, compounding is a Dutch thing to do, in fact when words are written apart (when they shouldn't) it's called "the English disease". Seriously!

me too, but gradualy

In Dutch it's a rule to stick nouns together as much as possible by default. (unless it's an exception where you can't :p)
