Frrrrrrrosssssssty!'Imelda' nicking shoes again. You probably can't see them really but she's wearing Mum's sandals.

Approx. 11.45 pm - torchlit procession.

Boxing Day fun - best frocks again!

My beloved with our gorgeous nephew.
All the best people accessorise with teddy-bears you know.

Shiny happy people

Stocking time.
Weird effect (not deliberate), but I like it.
Pretty. Either one. New frock and new kilt.

The sound of sleighbells

Christmas Eve and the kids were happy but not, thank goodness, over-excited.

The washing-up bowl in the foreground is because the Boy threw up spectacularly the night before.. fortunately there wasn't a repeat performance.

This is what I found when I went to work - a crime scene! Somebody had tried to break into the farmhouse :-(. Fortunately they hadn't managed it :-D.

Thorin sits down and starts singing about gold

Chocolate coins at Uncle Hopalong's. Gleeful or what?

Work night out for Christmas - much silliness. Unfortunately I had come down with a stinking cold (which I still haven't shaken off and it's the 5th of Jan. now) and didn't enjoy it as much as I could have.

Knitty fun

Playing guess the yarn (and the colour of it!) in Purplejen's mystery packages at the knitting group. It was also the last night at our venue as it closed just before Christmas, boohoo.. :-(

Time to catch up - wet December

The day of the Christmas event at work, but the only half-decent picture I got was this one.

I've still been taking pics (most days anyway) but had no time in the run of to Christmas to upload and choose them for the blog.

A view to a hill

Or some snow-capped mountains (look carefully). It was a beautiful clear afternoon so the Boy and I went up to the highest point in town again to see what we could see.

A festive cheat

I didn't get a chance to take any pics so here's one from Sunday. I came home from work to find the decorations up :-).

Monday, 8 December 2008


Me and the boy, being festive after school. I look hungover - just the effect of Christmas shopping...

Looks like a toy!

Considering what a grey dreich day it was, I'm pleased with the red tractor and the lurid green moss!

A busy day

A plant.Bit fuzzy, but weird colours.

Evening silliness.

The circulatory system

Okay, this isn't the circulatory system - this is the scene ten minutes after I realised we'd run out of milk. I really didn't want to go out again and as I'd had a long day at a first-aid refresher course, which leads me to.. (ta-daaah!):
The Circulatory System!
No, it wasn't by me. We'd divided into two groups to do some stuff. The other group produced this diagram of the circulatory system, apparently of a troll. This is revenge for the way everyone laughed at my diagram of the respiratory system and its cauliflower lungs - alas it had already been rubbed off before I remembered that I had my camera with me or you would see that it was clearly a Work of Genius.

Poor starling was a bit peeved that he (?) was too big to cling to the feeders properly. He gave it a good go though.

Goldilocks visits the three bears in winter

And finds three scarves almost finished. Mama Bear, it appears, has a short attention span.
