It's the Easter holidays and it is snowing so after dropping Mary off at the Nursery my dad helped me take some photos of the hills and things. This one is my favourite:
Followed by this one of cracking ice:
And then this one I took with the idea of portals or the Door to December:
I quiet like this one of a farm house as well - the sheep and colours say spring but then there is snow on the hills:
Then we have bleak landscapes mostly taken on extreme zoom!

I think this is 2010 and that for actual Christmas we went down to Essex for dinner at my parents house but these are photos of our Solcist meal and general festiveness.
Jean and Al playing with the marble run.
King Alaric at the washing up again
Garlic Bread - as in bread with garlic gloves in it
Jeany sort of setting the table
Jean decorating the MK 2 of The Little Book of Festive Poetry - I spent ages printing out out the sheets and glueing the words onto the pictures as the laptop I had couldn't cope with me trying to do things with large files!
It snowed and I remember playing with Jean outside and me and Al taking it in turns!
Tom and Jean
Jean really could not get enough of being outside in the snow!
It was the first year we found a yard of Jaffa Cakes!
Jean ran off with them
Sleepy Jean after all the fun
There will be more photos later but I am restricted to Al's camera phone at the moment and he is now walking into work!
I think this pic sums it up nicely though! (It was taken through the double glazed door as was a video of her pouncing the snow which I will try and process and youtube late today
Obviously the girls have not gone to school and nursery and so I will get no work done today (boo and hiss no really I do mean that). Jean is excitedly hunting out her warmer clothing and disguessing snow dragons with me - apparently there needs to be a story about them for bedtime tonight :/
I think today maybe a diet breaking day as I have to take them out in the snow to play and I am not feeling too hot at the moment so hotchocs and marshmallow floaters are my self bribe for going out there. It's options hot choc for me and I may even skip the marshmallow but we will see.
The snow is getting heavier so I think it's here to stay for a while.
I am systamatically sad we are not at The Bakery for the snow and really exstatic we are not at The Bakery for the snow but more on that later!
