IT HAS....

... been COLD here since New Year. I am talking just about zero in the day and -5 or so at night .. I know for some that's not soo cold .. but when the relatives in Australia (Perth and south of Sydney) are talking about temperatures in the 30 + I am VERY happy with our temperatures xxx

Nature being the formidable force she is ... is pushing up shoots in the garden...



.. so I will be assured of some colour out there come the spring x

Long term readers may remember that I am slowly working my way through the 12 days of Christmas for my son and daughter-in-law .. this year was 3 French hens..



... now I have to work out 4 calling birds!

I am finding that I REALLY like the long skinny shawl patterns that can be wound round and around to keep the neck really warm...






We only had ONE appointment (warfarin clinic) this week .. so I celebrated by getting a head cold!! lol x Kept me in the house keeping warm and drinking plenty xx lol

Off to find my next project to work on x Hope you are having a good week xx

It is the time of year for colds and mine that began the last day of school, is working it's way out. I was rather glad to have it as an excuse when called to sub at "Winter school". Those chickens are great! I am going to make a sketch because this is the year of the chicken ... or rooster ... on the oriental zodiac.
