    I keep forgetting to mention the catkins, which are now busy dangling all over the place. Snowdrops are also coming up thick and fast, I took a detour past a nearby village churchyard which resembled a snowdrift. A few more birdies in song too, Robins, Dunnocks, Song Thrushes and the first Blackbirds.

    I walked up a path I hadn't done for a while. More trees blown down and blown about and plenty of green shoots of recovery springing up from the ground, but naff all birds on the fields except for the inevitable pigeons and a few gulls and rooks. When I got home I watched another pheasant migrating out of the fridge and into the oven, wrapped in bacon and accompanied by Brussels sprouts.

    A strange yet tasty winter.

    A friend told me they were forecasting rain for today, so was pleasantly surprised just to see grey clouds ... of course plenty of time for the rain to come ...

    Strange happenings in London last night with a burst water pipe!
    What a flood it caused ...

    Brr a chilly start this morning - woke up and saw thick frost brrr
    Thank goodness I didn't have to get up for work …

    The day got better and better, blue sky and sunshine albeit a little chilly - but a glorious winter day.
    Hope it's been nice wherever you are.

    Another very nice January day, enjoyed a short walk in the sunshine earlier, then went shopping … well sometimes you have to LOL!

    While parking I noticed quite a large corner of the car park cordoned off and within the cordon was a lot of discarded Christmas Trees. It was an official waste area for them and they were all waiting to be shredded … or at least I think that's what will happen to them.

    It will be nice if these cool but sunny January days continue a little longer  Smile

    All the best Jan

    Well, what was your weather like over the weekend?
    Ours was quite nice, we actually enjoyed some sunshine sunny

    Out for a short walk earlier it was very pleasant, but was keeping a careful eye on some extremely dark clouds that seemed to be getting nearer and nearer.

    Once back indoors the kettle went on and a cuppa was enjoyed cuppa


    Looking out of the window the dark clouds passed by and no rain!

    Can you believe it will soon be mid-January … time certainly flies by.

    All the best Jan

    Such a lovely blue sky earlier and the sunshine was very nice, but the wind was cool and I was glad of a thicker coat and scarf ... isn't it amazing the difference a scarf can make!!!

    The weather here in the UK is definitely getting cooler, will we have snow?
    I think some areas may.

    Keep warm

    Apparently The Met Office has warned of severe snow hitting England today as Britain braces for more freezing weather in the worst cold spell of 2019.
    Around two inches of snow is set to fall, which could cause travel disruption over northern England and Wales... so if you are within that area do take care.

    Out earlier this afternoon it was dry but cold and once again the winter coat, scarf and gloves were being worn … even our neighbours dog had his thicker 'dog coat' on as he went for his afternoon walk tail wagging - he's a happy fella Smile

    What a mix of weather we've had today … beautiful sunshine this morning and even our garden robin was chirping away, sitting on the branch telling everyone to get out while the sun still shone … lol

    Because later in the day it was pouring with rain, with plenty of puddles around for a toddler in his wellington boots to splash in … I think his mum was well prepared, I mean how can a two (or perhaps he was three) resist jumping in a puddle. I had to smile … Smile

    All the best Jan
