OK – the chances of it snowing here soon are quite remote, as it is quite mild and we never get much snow, but it is the title of this layout, using Weeds & Wildflowers wonderful christmas kit – A Wildflower Holiday
This is from February 2004, when quite a lot of snow fell in Bristol in just a few hours. When I picked up the Sarah from school I decided to drive down to the famous Clifton Suspension Bridge in the city, to get a few snowy photos of the bridge and our church, Christchurch, Clifton. We got there without incident, but after the photos, snowman and snowball fight, we headed for home. However the roads were so slippey due to the amount of snow, and then a sudden freeze, that the roads were nearly impossible to drive on. What should have taken 15 minutes took over 2 hours, but we made it in the end.
Here are a few more pics from that memorable snow fall
In my last blog entry, I shared a bit about a christmas tradition, and decided to “scrap” about it in a digital layout using Lara Paytons A Vintage Season kit (parts 1 and 2).
And my last creation to share is a first for me – a digital hybrid advent calender. For the non-digi readers, that means I created the calender on the computer, then printed out the various pieces onto card, then glued/assembled it. I used Chere Kaye and CoriGammons’ new kit Boyful Christmas.
Finally, the latest installment of the injured George (the cat) saga.
We collected him from the vets near the cottage last Thursday, and I am not sure if it was us or him who was more pleased. However when our local vet checked his wounds on Saturday she asked we bring him back on Monday for a closer examination under anaesthetic. Following that, she rang and advised he be returned to the original vet so he could continue to daily monitor to wound. So he has gone back to the Ballymoney vet’s again, and we are receiving regular updates.
Here are a couple of photos of George at home last week, modelling the latest must-have fashion accessory for cats this season.
That’s all for now,
