Still Chilly!

Well at least there has been blue sky and sunshine today and I'm not feeling quite so shivery! That wasn't the case at the weekend though, when Himself and I took a walk around Linlithgow Loch. I felt sorry for the poor water birds as it was just sooo cold;  in fact the overhanging branches were strung with icicles:

Despite being well wrapped-up, all our exposed bits (and even non-exposed!) were approaching the frost-bitten stage (a slight exag!) so it was great to get home and tuck into my homemade minestrone soup and Himself's yummy cheese and worcestershire sauce on toast! That's the beauty of cold days (got to find a positive somewhere!)

In the craft room I've been warming myself up by making happy Little Flowers in bright colours and using them on cards:

Gift tags:

and bookmarks:

I've also got some beautiful new patterned papers that I'm almost scared to start cutting into! I'm trying to work out the best way to use them so that absolutely NONE of the paper goes to waste! I've even drawn diagrams, it's like a mathematical puzzle!!

Have a great Easter break everyone!

What a wonderful 'icy' photo.

Your cheery flowers brought a smile to my face.

Now that food looks just yummy - I'd forgotten how fab Worcester sauce & cheese on toast tastes. Even yummier (?) with thinly sliced onion.

Keep warm.
