Grey, wet cold and miserable....

Grey, wet, cold and miserable...day after day for at least a week, a few British bloggers are not taking pictures due to lack of light. Well today was a break from that...the sun shone, cold clear and crisp. The day is drawing to a close with the most amazing clear night sky with a beautiful perfectly rounded moon...the children have been running around on the grass which is already frozen and on a short trip into the village the road salter is driving around. So I am assuming the quietness in blogland is due to many people celebrating Thanks Giving and the start of the holiday shopping. I am so looking forward to seeing what everyone is up to on the Christmas run up. Last year I got so much inspiration, so many ideas I only managed to get a small selection of the goodies I had in mind actually made up. My favourite being the match box advent calender with daily 'activity' treats...such as painting Mommy's toe nails different colours...walk in the woods...baking cookies etc. The other one I loved was the button picture, I saw this on a few blogs last year and from it I got re-acquainted with my glue gun and made a great button wreath with a cute picture of my babe in reindeer antlers. Oh and the daily giggles from the saucy interpretation of No appropriate behaviour's children's Lego advent calender. (For some reason I can not link to No appropriate Behaviours blog...if you want to take a peek...link through my side panel)
So lots of stuff to look forward to. I am pleased to report all the activity seems to have settled down here now, I am still working on lots of stuff...which I will start to take some pictures of and get them up on the blog. I am moving from one thing to another and its quite fun, lots and lots of sewing and some calming knitting in the evenings.
Its a bit of a Mommy weekend ahead, I have a busy one planed, Its my patchwork class, I will be leaving it a little early as there is a Christmas parade on I want to take the children to in the early evening, a band, candle lit parade and hopefully some mulled wine to keep the chill away.
Its also the Harrogate knitting and stitching show...it is a bit of a drive for me, but always worth it...so I am sure I will have some delights to show and tell next week.
Here's to a fantastic weekend, enjoy the sunshine, its not going to be around for long then it is back to the grey, wet, cold and miserable...

Great sunshiny day today, we both had a day off from work, we caught the train into Brighton, no shopping done, just spent the time in Travelbag trying to get some ideas for a holiday in January to hopefully be able to escape from at least some of the doom and gloom weather. Hope you and your little ones catch lots of sunshine over the weekend, have a happy one. x

Great photos, as ever! Hope you all have a happy weekend :)

ps. I picked up a pack of postcards in Ikea yesterday, just because they reminded me of your summer beach-hut shots.

It is so nice to see the sun isn't it. I have done my little ones advent socks again this year. I think that I posted on the blog about it last year. (my Mum made it, patchwork etc) I love all the christmas inspiration but unfortunatly have left everything far too late again!!

Can't wait to hear about the show! I wish I had made plans to go now. It is not that far for me. Maybe next year!

Lovely photos - and hasn't it been good to see the sun? Today was really cold and grey again here - at one point it looked like it would snow but fortunately not.
