Christmas 2010 (I think) (by )

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 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!

Jean decorating her new poetry book

It snowed and I remember playing with Jean outside and me and Al taking it in turns!

Snow Garden (by )

More snow fell after I took the pics and I regret not having gone out with the birthday money sooner and gotten my camera as it ment I was restricted to the half an hour of Al getting ready for work and his smart phone! However I did discover that the broken camera still records film ok so I did take some vids of the girls which I will attempt to process later on!

Ice Planet

I made Al stop to take a pic of him as he left for work but alsa the camera went with him!

Alaric in the Snow

But here is what I got! None of the kids paying sadly 🙁 Though it turned out Mary hated the snow where as Jean spent hours out in the garden making snow angels and just walking around in it, sticking it too the walls etc... I made soup out of frozen veg in the freezer, and then Mary went down for her nap so I ended up building a snow man with Jean and having a snow fight where we both got covered!

Old Snow Pics from The Bakery (by )

Cow on Snow Cranham

With the snow falling and having a broken camera I decided it was about time I dug into the archive and aired some of the snow pics that have been lurking around for the last few years. As I said yesterday I am both sad and happy not to be there anymore where snow is concerned. It was fantastic for sledding and pretty pictures but our water used to freeze and we couldn't look out the windows of the house for having to put bubble wrap on them to try and keep warm.

Snow over Suttons Mill

The new house is very different with double glazing and central heating and so snow is not the issue it used to be. A heavy frost could have us stranded in the valley so snow was a complete grind everything to a stand still.

Jean and the green house icicles

Enjoy the pics - I'm sure there will be more!

Snow At The Snell-Pym’s (by )

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!

Helium in the snow

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!

New Banner – Snowflakes (by )

You may have noticed that we have put a new banner on the blog 🙂 We liked The Little Book of Spoogy Poetry one so much that we made a wintery one out of one of the illustrations for The Little Book of Festive Poetry. The truth is that this was what this theme was for in the first place - well almost. The original plan was that I would take a series of photos of the roof of The Bakery that marked the seasons and have them change automatically. Unfortunately by the time I had gotten the photos that would work well we were having to look for somewhere else so it just never happened.

But we both like the way the drawings have worked and it feels like a project finally being completed.

However I am disappointed that everybody else in the UK appears to have snow (real snow) this morning and all I have is my drawings of snowflakes!
