I'm dreamin of a white christmas........

just didn't want it tomorrow. .......we have lots of the white stuff here tonight in the small town. Tomorrow we are off to Yorkshire to collect eldest child from uni. if there's anyone up north could tell me what its like up there I would be truly grateful.

Herb just mentioned the fact that eldest said on the phone last night she was very excited it was going to snow here......she wasn't concerned we might be about to do a 6 hour round trip in a blizzard......ahh i replied that's what parents are for, to do all the worrying about practical matters.

Tree is up tonight but awaiting its adornment when eldest returns...its a family tradition, girls do the tree while mother sips a Harvey's Bristol cream or two. (father watches a football match somewhere in another room!), at least these days when they've finished I don't have to redo it when they've gone to bed....decs are emerging from hibernation......I'm a sucker for a reindeer or moose, anything with antlers really
I love the snowflake curtain here I found here and have made my usual snowflakes for the doors. unfortunately half were destroyed when herb opened said doors ripping some of my hard work to shreds. ho hum...wish us luck tomorrow!


  1. Your snowflakes are beautiful!
    Thanks for the link to the other blog, may have to add that one to my ever growing reading list.
    keep warm and safe on your trip today and I hope you all have lots of fun decorating your Christmas tree.
    Take care

  2. I wish you luck. We dont have all that much here inSouth Yorkshire, but the roads were icy thi morning. Apparantly it gets a bit snower in North Yoks, but you should e fine up to York xxx

  3. No snow here in Lancashire! Good luck. Merry christmas! suzie. xxx

  4. Ooh I hope you made it safely home with your uni fledling?

    Things are a tad more treacherous here now as the temperature has dropped and ice is forming!

    Have a lovely family Christmas,

  5. Hi Elsy

    Thanks for coming to see me. I know how you feel about the timing of this snow, the prospect of a white Christmas is exciting but I am due to drive out of London tomorrow so here's hoping I can beat the flurries that have been forecast. Do hope you managed to get to Yorkshire and back, and that you're not stranded on the M1 as I type!!


  6. Goodness your snowflakes are fabulous - mine NEVER turn out like that. I hope you survived the snowy roads! (btw I hopped over here from Bertie Meadows).

  7. I've just had a lovely wander around and fallen in love with your blue and grey star scarf. Fabulous and truly yummy.

    Now you've reminded me that we ought to have a go making some snowflakes while we look at the real stuff outside.
