SNOW

We have snow. More snow than we have had for years. Our last big load was in January 1995 our second winter up here. Ever since then we have had sprinkles and not much more. There is about 6cm now in the garden at the moment and I had to clear a little space so that the birds could have some food.

Biddle insisted on going out and sampling but soon hurried back inside













Both backbirds visited along with the two doves and sparrows. I have put some food under the planter so that its a bit more sheltered.

Here, the buses have been running on time. The main roads are clear and there is none of the chaos the south is experiencing. More is predicted for tonight so this could all change. Normally I would be quite happy but I should be going to visit a special school for children who find it difficult to behave at school. But it was closed today and is going to be tomorrow. So I am disappointed. I would really like a job working with these type of children. There are two jobs and three candidates. Fingers crossed when they re schedule. It looks like all schools here will be shut due to the predicted weather.

I have only one make to show this week. Bailey has a new jumper



Bailey is a special bear and I have had him over twenty years. Originally you could turn him inside out and make him into a red present. But when he began to look old and grubby I washed him, re fashioned him into a normal bear and he is much happier now.
I am expecting commissions from various other bears. They have said a jumper will protect them from cold and dust. Grace ( bear queen of the fashion stakes)has been unusually quiet. She has more than enough jumpers but I can see that this might not last much longer.

Thank you once again for reading and commenting

Biddle should stay indoors and keep warm. Cute jumper on Bailey.

Fingers crossed on the job front. I have a teddy bear from when I was child, that someone made for me, I named him Nicky, I need to get his arms restuffed. Enjoyed the pics!

Wow! Look at that snow! Sometimes I miss snow, but then I think about shoveling and I'm back to being glad we moved to the Southeast United States. Still, it's nice to see pictures of the snow....
