Saved by the weather

Morning folks....I had a sneaky feeling that this was going to be a load of old waffle kind of a day....nothing crafty to post as I desperately try to catch up with the list of things to do....but the good old British weather came to the rescue and saved you all from me waffling on about this that and the other.  And all credit to the folks from the Met Office who for once got the forecast right on the button.
But when they mentioned SNOW I just assumed it would land on the hills so what a shockeroonie yesterday morning as I sat at the computer with the first cuppa of the day and had a little peek out the my eyes were not deceiving was snowing HEAVILY and cold enough for it to lie.....oh dearie this really the start of winter.

Time to look out the Edmund Hillary and warm gloves for our chilly early morning stroll.  And I was not the only one feeling a bit surprised and confused. As my lovely visitors on Tuesday would tell you The Furry Boy loves when folks come to call and goes into doggie hyperdrive until he has made sure that everyone has been well and truly welcomed but I had him totally confused yesterday morning......a priceless moment.

As I sat all cosy and warm bang up against the toasty radiator catching up on a Timmie Technique Video with His Nibs fast asleep at my feet.....the dulcet tones of the Lord Himself echoed around the cubbyhole...."Hey bloggers...It's Tim Holtz here" at which point my snuggly meeter and greeter went into welcome mode.....shot out of the cubbyhole towards the front door tail wagging and then back again.....standing in the doorway with a priceless expression on his face....then he went into search mode....where is this visitor who is speaking to my Mum.....under the chair....behind the desk...searching and sniffing every nook and cranny before finally giving up and going back to snooze mode with a great big sigh......probably thinks he has succumbed to his Mum's totally losing the plot problem.
