I bought new kitchen scissors today, that came in the kind of plastic packaging that can only easily be opened by... scissors. Fortunately I have another pair.

It settled for being miserable after being variously snow, hail, sleet, icy rain and (apparently, though I didn't hear it) thunder. Oddly, it felt like November again apart from being much too light in the evening.

Dried out narcissus, looking vaguely like jaundiced jellyfish.

Travelling to the tropics of Lancashire.

We all watched Muppet Treasure Island this evening. 'Cos it's a classic innit. (Yes, it very much is - best pirate film ever).

I can haz box?

Another beautiful day today so obviously I have no pictures of Outside, just 12 pictures of my cat sitting in a small box, 'cos that's what the Intartubes runs on. You're welcome.

it's a beautiful day

Sunshine and a bit of weeding. Pulling up the mint I inadvertently planted last year is very satisfying.

a bit of bling

No special reason, it's just that it was lying there and I felt like taking a picture of it.

Productive day. Well, in some ways.

Dull, but it was either this or yet another pic of Cat2 looking totes adorbs.

Hurray for rain!

A melting snowman biscuit, a cup of coffee and a fire - what could be nicer?

chug chug chug

Heading north - spring? What spring?

abstract daffodils

The daffodils are in a vase on my kitchen window-sill - I was leaning across the sink to take pictures so some of them are a bit random in composition. I quite like the way that's worked out in this case!

Oddly the picture looks very green (to me at least) now that it's pasted in here. The original is much more daffodil-coloured.

A bit of colour in the garden.

Out to lunch

Ah, coffee..

Growing things

The three pots on the left are ones that Miss M planted up at an event at the local library. The one on the left will be a Venus fly trap apparently. The one with the face will grow grass 'hair', and can you guess what the one with the cloud and castle will be? Yep, beanstalk!
