We finally got real, proper snow here last weekend. This is what my garden looked like at the beginning of the week.
I couldn't get into the greenhouse for several days, but fortunately the little paraffin heater kept going without requiring a top-up and everything in there seems to have survived fine without me.
Every year I end up racing around for Christmas at the last minute, and this year is no exception. The snow hasn't helped that, but I think that finally I am nearly done. The house is cleaned, the food is bought, the tree is up and the presents are nearly all bought. Of course I haven't wrapped anything yet and I still need to make the mince pies but there's still about 36 hours left isn't there! Before I get wrapping though I think I should sample the chocolate biscuits, after all it would be wrong to offer them to guests without testing the quality first wouldn't it?!
I hope you all have wonderful Christmases and wish you all lots of happiness and peace in 2011.
