woolly cat jumper and twig scrumping

.
we were a bit worried that Plimsoll seemed not to be going outside since its been snowing, and therefore not going to the toilet {she does it outside somewhere}. We thought she should try her woolly jumper, that it might encourage her a bit...but no, straight back indoors she went.

we went out to the woods in the morning to collect some more twigs and leaves for our jewellery shop display, we tried to go to work but got as far as the cafe when we realised there were no buses. So we were forced to have a nice lunch in the caf before heading back home again.


it was lovely in the woods, we felt like we were on a skiing holiday! {I have never in my life, been on a skiing holiday, but this is what I imagine it is like}

 This is a massive old Yew tree, but it looks like Grandpa Christmas tree, all tired and weepy.





 the snow nearly submerged my wellies!

 this robin was completely spherical!


















































I felt {and probably looked} just like a five year old!
Its still snowing right now, this is quite rare for London before Christmas so may not be that exciting to readers from Canada and Iceland!

Oh snow don't go X

  12. Actually, I'm loving your snow photos, and a bit jealous too. Though I live in Ottawa (Canada), we are still waiting for our snow. I guess Jack Frost decided to travel to other places this December. But there is snow in the forecast this weekend, and I can't wait!!

    You look totally adorable in your cold weather getup, and so does Nao and Plimsol.

  14. wow! that robin is amazing. they don't look like that here. i've always seen cards and drawings of that little cutie and wondered if it was real!

  15. Your excitement makes it exciting! ;) Plus, snow always looks nice and it's only after the 17th-day-in-a-row-with-slipping-in-icy-terrains-or-disrupted-commute that it begins to feel, well, a bit mundane.

  16. Hi, I love your snow pics.
    I am in the Czech Republic so we have lots of snow here too. I am originally from W Yorks in the UK but missed the UK snow as have been here a year and a half. It seemed to snow a lot when I was a kid though.
    Have more snow fun, Tracy

  22. I grew up in Luton and well recall the rare occasion that is snowed at Christmas - it was very special indeed. Although now in Canada snow is plentiful and frequent (usually), I recognize your excitement at the sight and feel of this sudden winter wonderland. PS - Plimsoll is gorgeous - a word/name I haven't heard since my elementary school days in Luton!
