Oh no not more snow !!!

We woke up this morning to lot's of snow. So far we have avoided being snowed in, but today it's probably the worst we have had which is a nuisance as we were meant to be in Surrey to babysit the grandchildren today.  The roads are quite bad and my son rang to say that they were having a blizzard there, so our plans have been scrapped and we are staying home instead. 
I only hope that it isn't snowing over Christmas because I have to get a train from Esher to Waterloo on Christmas eve to meet up and travel with my son  who is volunteering with me, I will be staying with him and his girlfriend in their apartment as it's close to the centre we are all working at on Christmas day. I will be so disappointed if the plans go all wrong because of the snow. I am so looking forward to my shift on 25Th.

The Garden this morning

Our Christmas fireplace looks cosy with all the candles lit, and because we decided on not having a tree this year it makes a lovely seasonal statement.

I probably wont be posting again before Christmas, so I would like to say to everyone have a Wonderful and Peaceful Christmas and I wish you all a Happy New Year.

Good luck with the volunteering - hope it goes well. With a bit of luck the current bout of snow will be gone in a couple of days.

Happy Christmas!

I think that a lot of folk are staying put at home today. Hope that the snow and ice clears in time for your Christmas adventure Maureen. Wishing you all the best for Christmas and the New Year xxx

The snow is so lovely. Your fireplace looks so cozy and warm. And Doc, you make a pretty good Santa.

I'll have to doubly bolt my doors, in case you should try to steal my youngster... you know, I'd be lost without her (and I sort of suspect she'd be lost without me: she's hardly ever more than 10 feet away from me!) Just the other day my piano tuner (a dog lover) noticed how she never takes her eyes off me. Merry Christmas, Maureen. May the new year bring you peace and joy.
