Snow - day 2!

I promise i won't bore you with too many pics, but its not often we get this much snow. this is the view from the front of our house.

by the way, hubby got home safe at 11pm last night after a pretty miserable journey! following on from yesterday, they arrived from Alicante to Cardiff instead of Bristol, then had to wait for coaches to take them all to Bristol - on arrival at Bristol the entire plane load of passengers had to fill in forms as everyones luggage was still at Alicante - reason for this being that as weather bad over here and not sure where the plane could land on its return they needed extra fuel so could not take any luggage - however they were supposed to inform passengers that they had a choice, stay with luggage or fly home without! nobody told them this! they then had a horrible drive home in the snow and found loads of diversions as roads closed! Did just hear that their luggage is now at Gatwick!

anyway few more pics - Mitch enjoying a lovely roll!

Iona thought she'd check out the henhouse and eat their bread! She's bored!
the two hairies - Bubs and Tops, tucking into breakfast!

All jobs done outside so am hoping, after a nice cuppa and perhaps a muffin, to spend some time sewing and knitting - want to try and finish the top for my cosy quilt today!

and possibly a bit of cake making - cold weather always makes me very hungry!
take care

I think I may be in love with Bubs and Tops. Can I bring them back to my house?

The photos make it look so beautiful don't they? If we didn't have to drive in it, work in it, walk in it or anything else difficult in it, it'd be fine! x

Oooh, your quilt looks snuggly, as do your ponies - lovely!

They're suggesting more snow for us tomorrow. Is it wrong to hope for another snow day?

Poor Hubby!! Hope he gets all of his luggage back. Alicante nice though. Lovely pictures, I never get bored of seeing photos like this, there is something very serene about them.

Lovely pictures Maria - not boring at all! Your hubby's journey sounds like a total nightmare but glad he got home safe and sound.

I'm not surprised you need ckae after all that feeding and mucking out! Your hairy boys are lovely :-)

Our chickens ventured out today as most of the snow had gone and they had a grand time - lots of happy clucking!
