Snow here in N Wales.
YEs.We have snow,not a lot at the moment but more to come.We have a well stocked freezer and fridge but are only a ten minute walk from our local market town centre.So if we can't get the cars out we can walk.I quite like being snowed in but only for a short time.I have had an indulgent afternoon reading and am now doing some cross stitch.Cross stitch you ask.She is a knitter and a crocheted but I dug out a cross stitch kit that I started last year.Would I be able to follow the chart?Would I be able to see the holes?In fact ,the biggest problem is threading the needle but I can buy a needle threader.I decided to treat myself to a simpler but effective kit.It is called Tribal Owl by Skyler Larson.It came as a chart and then I bought the threads so it worked out to be fairly cheap.Someone in a review said it only took them two weeks to do it.I think it may take me longer!! I am also knitting (yes,there always has to be some knitting) some socks for C.They are in Stylecraft Head over Heels .Colour Ingleborough.It is a wonderful striped pattern in green,purple and turquoise.Very striking.My OH likes jazzy socks. THe book I have just finished is The Food of Love by Amanda Prowse(recommended on blogger).A very interesting and quite disturbing read about anorexia.I have now started Train to Trieste by Dominica Radulescu.I reviewed her second book Black Sea Twilight for Newbooksmag and rally enjoyed it.Then ,I have to read Sacred Heart by Sarah Dunant for my reading group.The next session will be really difficult as one of our members has recently died aged only 71. Finally,have any of you seen the film The Greatest Showman ( I may have mentioned this before).It is a really good film mad our local film theatre are showing it as a singalong.What a great idea. TAke care in the snow and look after yourselves.Back soon.Barbarax
