Still Snowing!

It's been snowing all week.....piles of it lying all over the place - people taking hours to go just a few miles. Airports closed, trains cancelled, roads blocked. It looks beautiful but after about 10 days of it......and tomorrow the maximum temperature is meant to be MINUS 8 DEGREES CENTIGRADE - BRR!!

I promised I wouldn't buy any new Christmas decorations this year as I already have so many....but I could resist a little fat robin to cheer the place up - and they were made in India and are Fair Trade so who could argue....from Scandi Chic (bought in a lovely shop called Rhubarb in the town of Kirkcudbright in Dumfries and Galloway, SW Scotland, where I spent last week with my parents - snowless it was too!)

No, you just can't resist those adorably plump robins!! Oh, the pictures of the snow... beautiful. I was just trying to paint evergreens... almost that exact same picture in my background! Stay warm Di!!!

I'll trade your -8 for our - 20! :-)

Your winter photos look beautiful. The red phone booth with the snow on is just... so UK Christmassy!

Hope your new house is warm!

Wow, you have much more snow than us! Isn't it wonderful? It's so cold here, I start to get a bit fed up about winter...might have to relocate ourselves to Crete or something in spring.

Enjoy the snow for me! We have just a measley inch or two -- I'd love to have as much as you do. Your snow pictures are so pretty!
