Good Morning!

We woke up to another covering of snow today, so all plans scuppered. But I am beginning to get into the Christmas groove and realising that I've left it all far to late to do some of the things that |I wanted to, so...what you can't do anything about don't waste energy stressing about, right??
I did finish making these little ornaments to put in with my Christmas cards and the tree is up, just the rest of the decorations to go. I am expecting friends this afternoon for mulled wine and mince pies, but at the moment I don't know if anyone can make it. So I shall just sit back and see what happens!

Barnaby really enjoyed his walk this morning, I know I've had a bit of a work out too!walking in snow stretches muscles not ususlly stretched!

 This is the beautiful lime tree at the back of our house, I love just watching this magnificent tree all year round as it is so different in all the seasons.

Where does the time go??

I'm struggling a bit this year getting my head round the idea that it is Christmas in two weeks time!! I am more or less organised, I hope to get the tree up this weekend and at least get some of the presents wrapped while prying eyes are not around.

I've been making bunting as stocking fillers, quick and easy and easily personalised, got two more lengths to make this week and then I'm done.

And I had to share with you these lovely little baby gowns that my neighbour gave me, they are gorgeous. i will get them washed and pressed as soon as I have time to do the job properly.

PHEW!! what a few days........

We woke up to this on Thursday morning and of course the schools were shut, much to the childrens delight. It happened to be my day off so everything I had planned, well.............the next day my planned meeting in Chippenham was impossible on icy roads and although the school was open it was a late start, another disrupted day!

But it was very pretty and we really did have a lovely day even though we no longer have any supplies of hot chocolate or the supermarket AGAIN! 

And yesterday we went to Birmingham for the Clothes Show, it was a great day out, the girls were beside themselves with excitement pretty well the whole day. I have to confess that I really still don't quite get it, despite my daughters best efforts! but it was a very good show, even though it was a long drive there and back, and I was grateful that there was a bit of a thaw on the roads.

I enjoyed seeing the famous Gok Wan who happens to be a pretty good entertainer aswell as a fashionista.

And as fashion shows go this one was very upbeat with some good background themes and the dancing was well choreographed too. I enjoyed the whole thing as a good bit of entertainment but I don't think it's going to change my fashion sense, in fact I'm not sure I really noticed the fashion!!  I suspect the girls have already put me down as a lost cause!
Now to some serious Christmas decorations and presents finished and wrapped........
