A little update.

Hello, it's been a while since my last post. Life has been very busy enjoying/organising all the pre-Christmas activities that seem to fill family life. Nativity plays have been enjoyed, Christmas parties been and gone, school finished on Friday, so now just a few more days left before the big day is here.

I am sort of ready, just need to do a food shop, finish making three more stockings, oh and ice the Christmas cake and make mince pies. No pressure or anything then!

Having escaped the snow two weeks ago, with only a very light dusting, I sort of guessed that our turn would come and it did indeed. We had a very freaky snow storm on Friday, which meant that school closed early and the end of term disco was cancelled. Saturday, as forecast, was one of the snowiest days that I can remember. It started snowing at around 9am and finally finished snowing around 3pm. We went from a light dusting left from Friday to around 8 - 10 inches. It really does look like a winter wonderland.

We wrapped up warm and went sledging this morning. We live on the top of a hill and are very fortunate to have a very hilly golf course about 5 minutes walk away (well make it 20 minutes walk in very deep snow!) We met my sister up on the slopes, she lives in the village that lies in the valley at the bottom of our hill, and enjoyed some very tiring sledging. We trekked back to her house for a warming coffee, chocolate cake and to dry out and a rest before we had the long trek back up the hill to our house. My legs were really tired when we got home, it was a really good leg work out.

I have had some wonderful advent gifts from the lovely Pene, I have so enjoyed opening her gift each morning, she really has spoilt me with her generosity.

Well I am feeling very tired tonight, so I'm afraid there aren't any pictures. I will try and post a proper post - pictures and all before Christmas.

Till next time.

  1. Glad your enjoying the snow and pressies. We've been hit again and are now forecast temps between -5 and -15 for the next week, so any shopping not already done won't get done now which actually takes the pressure off slightly.
    Have a wonderful christmas Alison
    Big snowy hugs
