Like many others we are snowed into our house, good job i am used to being in all the time or i would be pretty peeved right now! It has been snowing here in South Yorkshire for a week now and is showing no signs of stopping anytime soon. It is 2-3 foot everywhere around us for upto 10miles away and 3-6 ft in snow drifts up against fences and walls. We havent had post for 4 days and havent been able to use the car for as long! the dogs are loving though everytime they go out into the garden, (pics below) and because they are small dogs we lose them everytime they go out, all you can see is their heads bobbing up and down, lol.........i wish i could tell you that i have been using this opportunity to stamp like a good'un in my craft studio, but i have somehow caught a flu bug and been in bed for the last 3 days , with the most horrible sore throat i've ever had and my nose and head are like cotton wool, my legs feel like they dont belong to me, oh well, never mind, i can look out the window at the children next door throwing snowballs at each other and building snowmen and igloos much better than i could at their age!!  the artist in me didnt extend to snowman building! but so wish i wasn't disabled cause the kid in me wants to play in the snow and throw as many balls as i could at John my hubby and he wish he was more agile so he could throw some back, lol!! Anyway, hopefully we will get some post come through and i will get my order of a new cricut mat and cartridge that should have been here 3days ago, as i paid for overnight delivery and citylink decided they couldnt get anywhere near us at the beginning of the week, so i am waiting, like everyone else for my goodies.

The first pic is of our back garden, the second of Barney, one of our Bichon Frise dogs who loves the snow, how can you tell? and the thrid is of our front gate and drive, rather obscurred and nearly completely buried by the snow and we are supposed to be getting even more, if thats at all possible!!!!

I hope to feel better over the coming days so that i can make some things in the studio and post them on here, well, whatever you are doing, working, crafting, playing in snow, stay safe and keep well. xxxx
