Oh how I love crisp, frosty-cold, Winter bright days!! They've sadly been few and far between this season, but it's made them all the more joyous when we have had them.
These pictures were taken on Sunday. I was walking with Little Lady, she was holding my hand and chattering away nineteen to the dozen as we walked.
I asked her if she minded us having to walk on such a cold day (we were going to a Birthday Party on the other side of town, cutting down across the park to reach the main road). She replied that she loved it, that she was very happy to be walking instead of travelling by car.
It was rather glorious.
J's home this week, he lit the fire first thing this morning and it's still burning now, twelve hours later. All is cosy and warm here at number 24. The Little Peeps had their last day at school today and I went along to the church to sing Christmas carols and choke back the emotion of it all. Away in a Manger, head down, swallow hard, keep singing. Silly old thing, I am quite over emotional these days. Little Man spent yet another day horizontal on the sofa, I cannot believe he is still so unwell. He did manage to go to school yesterday, but it knocked him sideways, so we'll be back at the docs tomorrow to see why his head is still so hot and his legs still so wibbly. Sigh.
I have made some progress on the Christmas preps this past week, most gifts have now been purchased Thank Goodness. Cards have yet to be written mind you, but that's on my to-do list for tomorrow. The house is half-way decked but still needs to be finished off, I'm hoping to do that tomorrow too so will take some pics to share with you.
I hope that all is Merry and Bright with you my friends, keep cosy, and I'll be back to chat soon.
