Yep, Christmas shopping was as horrendous as I imagined it would be.  Note to self, next time do not go to book shop first and buy 5 hard back books that you then have to carry around for the next 3 hours.  I'd like to say I'm done but in reality I have barely scratched the surface.

I'm having a day at home today, trying to finish the last orders people have made for Christmas.  I love watching the birds taking the last of the pyracantha berries.  A you can see we have had heavy frosts for the last few days which hang around all day as the temperature doesn't get above freezing

I've brought a little bit of snow indoors, hanging up these fab snowflakes.  They remind me of the kind of decorations we had when I was little.  I bought these online from RE and love them!


  1. Must check out RE. I do all of my shopping online, because I hate physical shopping so much, especially at this time of year. Lazy or what.

    1. No, not at all. I try to get some gifts at the various craft fayres I go to, but will do lots online. Our town centre is failing miserably, we are losing shops regularly to out of town stores, so that was the main reason I went in yesterday, but it was as hateful as you can imagine! x
