Shimelle's doing another brilliant class

Just a quick heads up for an online class that Shimelle Laine & the Garden Girls are doing is over at There is lots of info on Shimelle's and the sign up is

For anyone who hasn't done one of these courses before I can thoroughly recommend them. They are great fun and good to do if your mojo is running a bit light.

Snowy week

This week we had snow off and on. The South has been at a standstill and children have had a lot of fun. There were many opportunities for photographs and I have been snapping madly. These are just a few to give you a taste of the week.

Feb. 7th The snow was still lying and was frozen hard. Note the bin men were unable to get down our street and we have had no mail for 4 days.

Feb. 6th Schools were all closed. The kids were delighted to have another day off. We walked into town but it was very slushy on the way back.

Feb. 5th Most schools were closed but we were at school. Pauline showed off her new wellies. We did snowball science, snow poetry, made sparkly snowflakes and build a snow scooby doo!

Feb 4th Church Green with a touch of frost.

Feb 3rd Just a little snow. Enough to make this little snowman for the Foundation class. They took him inside so he did not get cold!

Feb 2nd How did my gorgeous boy become 9! It seems like 5 mins ago that he was my baby.

The weekend

32/365 1st Feb. I had a little photo session with Rosie & her friend down at the lakes. There is a really cool underpass with lots of graffiti, which makes a good background. You just have to make sure you don't stand next to anything rude!
31/365 31st Jan. I thought I would periodically record the price of petrol. It was so changeable last year. At least it is now down to under £1.00 a litre. I paid 88.9p per litre of unleaded. That should last me the week.
