Weather we like it , or NOT !

Like a lot of others , we had some snow on Monday. The kids thought it was great , apart from being at school and having to have indoor play as they don't let them go out in the snow in case of accidents.
 Anyway , I took them round the corner to the hill after school , and they went sledging for a while , until I got too cold as I forgot to take my gloves .
  Strangely , it was very foggy while it was snowing , as you can see in these pics.

  The following photos were taken this morning , on the way home from dropping the kids in to school .
  The white you can see on the trees,bushes and plants is not snow . It's an accumulation of three days frost and low temps. I think it looks really pretty .

  The forecast is for us to get a lot more snow tomorrow,  so we will see what it brings. My basic animal instincts kick in in bad weather , lol, I just want to fill the cupboards and stay inside . As long as me and my loved ones are safe and warm , I am happy, other wise I get very unsettled.

 Monday was meant to be a stitching day for me , as hubby was at a friends', gaming. With the weather being not so good , I was on edge and couldn't really settle to much , but I made a new start , and finished it on Tuesday night .
This is a freebie by The Little Stitcher, and should have been completed much quicker , but I was busy jumping up and down to check the conditions outside ,lol .
 I have made more progress on butterflies Galore , and also another small new start , but will show them next time.
 Stay safe and warm .

Beautiful snow pictures. We haven't had so much as a flake in my little corner of Cornwall, I'm quite envious
I love your little Christmas finish

Those are lovely snow pictures. I'm rather fond of snow, until I have to go outside that is!
Thank you so much for offering to send me some thread. I would very much like to take you up on your offer :) It's Anchor 013. No worries if you don't have it, but it would be brilliant if you did. Thank you for your generosity!
Best wishes.
