Thanks Elisa - and we've got snow!

Elisa, my wonderfully kind stitching friend and fellow blogger, has given me this award.


Thanks Elisa I was very touched, it was a great surprise.

As part of this award, I have to list 5 of my addictions and to award 5 bloggers who I think are fabulous.

These are my 5 addictions:

1. Stitching - the only No. 1 addiction
2. Wine - especially drinking french red in the Languedoc
3. Chocolate - Galaxy every time
4. Our caravan in Wales - it's just perfect
5. I agree with Elisa's fifth choice...
but have to say "coffee" although it's a close call LOL

My fabulous blog awards go to:

1. Karan
2. Chris
3. Jan


We have snow again today - so another day off school for me and Philippa, and Michael has been unable to get to the kennels for his work placement as it is out in the country. This was our back garden at 8.30 this morning.











This is my twisted hazelnut in the front garden - I think it looks fabulous covered in snow,



and look who came calling for breakfast. I have run out of bird seed so I put out some broken cornflakes - it must be hard for them - be like us eating ice cream all the time.

I hope everyone is keeping warm and cosy, have fun if you are playing in the snow, thanks for popping by.

Hi Clare

Thank you for your award! I will have to think of five things I like now and have had to ponder on the 5th one you and Eliza have chosen!! LOL erum......
Changing the subject hurriedly... erum.....And yes the snow does look beautiful, our bird table and feeders have been busy feeding a lot of starlings as well as our other regular visitors.
Stay cosy warm

Congratulations on the award & thank you so much for awarding it to me. Wow! :0)
Great pics. Our snow has been short-lived, thankfully - though noticed it's being forecast again. So much for tackling some garden jobs! LOL
