#TheOrdinaryMoments – Snow Way!

We haven’t had a decent snowfall since I was pregnant with E. Whilst E has seen snow, it has only ever been a few centimetres in depth and has never lasted for more than twenty-four hours.

This week I was half-hoping for a ‘snow day’, I say half-hoping as E had her school trip and I knew that she’d be heartbroken if it were to be cancelled. Sadly, the snow arrived but there simply wasn’t enough to warrant a snow-day (although much to E’s disappointment, the trip was postponed to stay on the safe side). Nevertheless, we made the most of the white stuff by taking a few pictures, making a few snow-angels and throwing the odd snowball.…

Returning To The Routine

The holidays are about to come to an end and although we’ve had a fortnight off from school and work, it feels like far longer. The kids and I are now more than ready to return into some kind of routine and I’m quite looking forward to starting a new term.

I’m well aware that we are still in the midst of winter and  its flipping freezing for a further two months, but the title ‘spring term’ seems to offer a little light at the end of the tunnel. Christmas has been and gone, the decorations are now down and I’m therefore done with the dark nights and the winter weather!…

#MySundayPhoto – Cloud Cover

Whilst on the drive back from our mad dash out to town, Paul and I couldn’t help but to notice the beautiful cloud formations which seemed to be blanketing the combe. It looked as if winter had rolled in and the hillsides were snuggling under a duvet of thick, fluffy cloud cover for warmth.

Do you ever take the time to look at the clouds and to make shapes or patterns from them? I could spend hours looking up into the sky making out all kinds of shapes, animals, patterns all kinds of fluffy wonders.

It sure is chilly out and I’m sure that it wont be too long before the clouds are replaced by snow.…

#MySundayPhoto – Winter Walks At Sunrise

It’s not often that I see sunrise, if ever at all to be honest. I’m certainly no early bird, I for one would never catch any worm, not that I’d ever want to either for that matter. My husband on the other hand seems to enjoy waking early, he is from farming stock and can handle the early mornings, he therefore takes the dog on her morning stroll before I’ve even contemplated dividing myself from the duvet.

Heres a snapshot he captured the other week whilst out on his usual ponder with the pooch. This picture simply doesn’t do justice to the colours which were in the sky that morning, I saw for myself albeit from the warmth of my windowsill.…
