The Snow has arrived!!

All weekend Beth was looking out for snow, I have a couple of weather stations and she must have checked the stations a hundred times praying that the snow would appear and I suspect hoping for her school to close. There was no trace when we went to bed last night, but when we got up this morning we had a covering. The big surprise of the day was that the school stayed open!! Just as well as she had a Biology GCSE to sit!!

By late afternoon the snow started again and we sat at work and watched and wondered how the roads would hold up. It got heavier and heavier but the temperature has remained hovering around zero. Overnight we are forecast some more.

It is nice to see everything covered in snow, its just a nuisance if you have to go anywhere !!

Over the weekend I picked up my scrapbooking again, I like to scrap in order so its a bit of a shock to realise that I am still scrapping the cruise from last June! I have loads of photos waiting so I'll have to get my finger out.....

It was so nice to be able to look at some photos from last summer. We had a surprise foxglove appear in the garden, which grew into a 6 foot high plant. We also had some aliums that flowered with beautiful seed heads following, It makes me wish we were able to sit out in the sun instead of the snow that we have!!

I made this layout with all the bits of left over photos, it makes me smile! There are action and inaction shots plus a couple of scenic shots!! I can now move onto the next lot of photos which will be Carl's graduation and the Olympic Torch relay.

Have a happy snow week!!!
