... it seems as if it is going to stay cold for a while yet. This was what we woke upto on Saturday morning.
Although suddenly at lunch time today the temperature rose from -5 to -1 quite quickly. It must be that hint of sunshine. While i was out to day it was bitter. I had my trip to have my 3 yearly mammogram. it was in a different place than usual as because the pavements are so slippery it involved two buses. I got there rather early but no one else was waiting to be seen so i was in an out before my allocated appointment time. The young lady was very pleasant and explained everything she was going to do. I forget each time time how hard that metal squeezes! Hopefully that will be it for another three years.
On Saturday we went for a short visit to the craft fair in Saltaire. We had some very scrummy cake made by the marvellous teadance company
and some very cute angels at Wise Young Crone
we saw beautiful wooden bowls by flyingshavings.co.uk
I did not buy anything there though as money is tight, I tend not to buy from textile stalls and most of the products I would not be able to make were out of my price range. However it was very enjoyable and has spurred me into wanting to make things after Christmas.
When we arrived home on Saturday for a late lunch we were pleased to find a new visitor in the garden
excuse the blur but there were taken from the kitchen window. He has been back most days attacking the fat slab although a starling was having a good hack today. I caught him resting on the bird cage
I am well prepared for winter this year
these are my new wellies very useful for popping out the back to feed the birds and eventually to visit the allotment.
These are my impulse buy from a couple of years ago
Waterproof and warm but not suitable for deep,deep snow.
Tia is none the worse from her slide off the bed last week but has decided this is a much safer place
Most of what I have done this week is secret and involves cards. The sewing room is gradually winding down until after Christmas and has been promised a bit of a tidy! Sewing machine has gone for a little rest until next week. I think she deserves it.
Thank you for popping by and a
Merry Christmas and happy New year
