Hoar frost

I havn't seen hoar frost like this for ages.This what I what I was talking about yesterday but I hadn't got the camera with me.Today we were off to Chester/Wirral again.Yesterday we were looking after Ruby while Sarah had tests for Addison's Disease at the hospital.We expected to look after Ru for an hour but it turned into three as they were running late,someone had a heart attack on the unit and the tests just took longer.What do you do with a three year old for three hours when it is minus 5!We went to a garden centre where we knew they would have toys out plus a cafe.We then went to a supermarket cafe for lunch.She is so good but never stops talking.We couldn't get a word in edgeways..Her favourite word of the day was "actually".She wanted to know in the garden centre toy area where the bike was.The assistant said they hadn't put it out this year.She had remembered from last year!!She was three a few weeks ago.S's husband had his appointment yesterday at Christies to find out what they were going to do about his brain tumour.They kept him waiting for 90 minutes and then told him the panel hadn't had time to discuss his case!You can well imagine he was furious.Mike is totally laid back and very calm but he lost his rag and insisted on seeing the professor which he did.The prof had the 2 registrars in and tore a strip of them ,in front of Mike,for getting him there and then nothing to tell him.They have promised he will hear in the next 2 weeks.I think the worry and the not knowing is getting to all of us.The only consolation is that they mustn't think it is high priority but we just want to know.I try to put it to the back of my mind but it is difficult.
More hoar frost pictures.


  1. Oh my goodness, you've got a lot to deal with at the moment. My thoughts are with you all ... it must be such a worrying time.
    The trees near us all look like that too... I don't think I've ever seen anything quite like it! Take Care Kathy xxx
    P.S. Your parcel was posted today!

  2. Sorry to hear about your family's problems - I do hope everything gets sorted out soon.

    Your tree pictures are lovely - we are having lots of frost here which is very unusual for this area - it does look nice but it isn't half chilly :)

  3. Oh dear so sorry to hear about all your family's problems - must be such a worry for you. Keeping up with a lively three year old must help distract you from you for a while. Lovely frosty photos. Take carexx

  4. Ooops - I meant to say 'distract you for a while':)

  5. Illness worries are always there at the back of your mind no matter what you get on with. All you want is an answer but in my experience, the professionals don't seem to think your time is as valuable as theirs and don't understand why you get frustrated. I guess they see it everyday and they don't see you as an individual, just one of many :( That doesn't make it right though! Beautiful hoar frost pictures, we had it down here too and it looked fantastic - from inside!
