well the children have been back at school for 2 days and I'm settled back into a routine of creative time

mmm scratch that, in reality there's been no school due to - guess what - yep - snow..........

so no creative time, instead; lots of shovelling snow, two extensions to the igloo, and quite a lot of extreme sledging!

with a house full of children (having aquired two more for most of yesterday and today) the most I've been able to do is grab my camera, and take a few shots for a 365 photo challenge, to post a photo a day using my flickr account .

can you see a theme developing; snow, ice, wet mittens, and few minutes snatched at the laptop before providing more rounds of hot chocolate..........


  1. Ah yes, the hot chocolate habit. We have quite a lot of that here too ...

  2. Oh, for exciting children. The nearest they got to sledging was falling over in the local shop.

  3. I've had to restock the hot chocolate today!
    I'm doing the 365 photo challenge to have a lookie at yours!

  4. Happy New Year and good luck with your 365. Hope you're managing in the heavy snow. We have had 2 snow days here this week, though not nearly as much snow on the ground as you. Hoping there'll be a few more snowmen to be built before it all melts!

  5. 'yeah' for hot chocolate!!

    hope the weather settles soon,

    take care,

    Nina xxxx

  6. Delightful photos!! My poor children have been forced to take a respite from sledding, as it has become cold enough here to cause sudden and immediate death (or at least loss of a few fingers or toes)...
