I’ve just returned from a brisk and frosty dog walk. This is the lovely park at the end of our road, Brewster and I don’t always make it that far as it’s a long road and he’s still pretty young (and there is a park closer to us, it’s just not as nice). The photo above doesn’t show just how frosty it was, so here’s a good excuse to post a cute photo of a puppy 🙂
I think this is my favourite type of weather ( I may say that on every change of the season!), it’s sunny but icy cold here – I know the North has snow, but they can keep it for now – I have plans and I’m not ready for snow this year! This morning I impressed myself by driving the car for the first time evert – now that may make me sound a bit silly, but I’ve only been driving regularly for 18 months (measured by the age of Little Ted minus the 6 weeks to recover from c-section..) and last winter I stayed in or walked once it got icy!
On Friday Duncan and I had a rare date, we booked a baby sitter (about a month ago) and were planning on going to the cinema. When it came to it we couldn’t decide on a film, so I dragged D for mulled wine, mince pies and 10% off at my local yarn store, The Knit Club (before we went on to dinner). We put the discount to good use and bought the knitted bauble and little bird in the photo above ( the owl was a gift from Geraldine), I will also be surprised by sock yarn and a set of knit-pro needles on Christmas morning…. 🙂 if he’s lucky and I can figure out the sock thing I might knit him a pair for his wellies when walking the dog!
