The white stuff

a stroll in the sunshine

The school run: on the way.

Look at that view!

On the way back - sun low in the sky and it's baltic.

In which a good time was had by all

I threw a snowball - no, not at the cat, for the cat. He pounced! He discovered snowflakes! Later he caught a robin..

The kidlets toddling off sledging with their new sledges! Much excitement! For about five minutes - upon which they realised that you get cold and wet sledging. No amount of explaining that that's part of the fun could convince them.

However the locale was managing to look quite scenic.

A spoonful of sugar

Or a leaf-ful of snow!

Hester was unimpressed with the cold wet stuff - she shook a paw at every step.

Yeah, flowers.

I really need to get my little camera fixed..

My cheap supermarket bunch of flowers has been providing colour and happiness for days - gorgeous aren't they?

A morning's work

Took me forever this year, but it smells great. Mmmmmmmm....

I've been winding my hand-dyed wools into balls. Top left is red onion skins, top right is alder cones, bottom left is red cabbage with a soda crystal afterdip (and the result is light green though it looks like light blue in this picture) and bottom right is brown onion skins.

And some flowerts to cheer me up (the sunshine helped to!) - it's been very grey this week.

Here are the results of the Swedish jury. No hang on, that's not right. Actually the results of the onion-skin dyeing - left, brown onions, right red onions.

The Boy's Mathwise thing this week was this (rather brilliant) construction stuff.

Looking shiny.

serious face

Just a quick snap really - I was trying to get a picture of the Boy but he wouldn't co-operate! So Miss Mouse it is.

I'm not entirely sure this picture is the right way up. Anyway. It was a bright sunny day so I walked up to the school to get the Boy and took a few pics on the way.

Chilly but bright.

A lucky picture really, I was trying to photograph my knitting and she walked by and looked at the camera just at the right moment.

Ah, seed catalogues - so much wishful thinking :-D.

I was out in search of COLOUR today, but I'm as pleased with this picture as with the colourful ones. It appears almost frosty though it wasn't at all cold in reality!
