Today my blog is five years old. It doesn't seem that long. In honour I am offering a snowman. He isn't quite finished yet but you get the general idea

The instructions for him came from a 1985 copy of Woman's Weekly. I made Mr and Mrs Snowman and still have them although they now need some serious tlc. if you would like a chance to win this little chap you need to have left a comment on the previous post and this one. (Hint go back and comment). The draw will take place on "Oliver Day" which is 6th December.

This time last year we were about to get our first snow of the winter. Little did we know how long it would last. As the council et al have made contingency plans this year we probably will get none.

Last week we ate the last of our home grown potatoes

and sampled two of the few parsnips that survived

We have had more sparrows than I have been able to count. The robin is now a regular along with several blue tits. Starlings have squabbled over and demolished a fat slab in a couple of days and the finches are just beautiful

I have posted off my swap Christmas ornament and received one back. No photos until they grand opening in December. The sewing machine table is piled with "stuff" waiting to be finished. Once I finish at school then I might get straight.

Remember you have to be in it to win as they say

Happy blogoversary. Your little family of snowmen look lovely. Yes the weather has been so weird that one of our rhodedendrons started flowering. At last today it has turned really chilly.
