Jan into Feb. We've had a little snow. I'd have liked more, but never mind.
I've still little free time for taking photos and blog posting and I think I'll pobably have forgotten how to crochet by the time I'm able to do some crafting again.
Having said that, there had been some crafting happening although it's school related and doesn't involve much wool.We're now doing China as our topic and we've been having fun making dragon puppets, lanterns, paper cuts, drums, scrolls, etc. The next project is to attempt to make a big dragon for a dragon dance at our assembly. In preparation for the assmbly we've also been enjoying learning some new songs, including Gong Xi Gong Xi which I now can't get out my head.
I struggle to keep up with the paper work associated with school though and although I'm managing not to drown in it I do feel rather submerged. And as for housework, hahahah! Guess how I'll be spending our mid term break, much of it anyway...
So... the first lot of photos are rather random ones form the end of January when I was trying to get some shots of the snow in less than ideal conditions (mostly darkness!) before it vanished. We then had another fall of snow which has lingered longer with the cold weather and which provided a most attractive backdrop to a walk up to the folly which you can see in the second set of photos from last weekend. The sky was gorgeously blue that day, lovely and bright and it felt good to be out enjoying it.
Enjoy this weekend everybody! Till the next time...
Beautiful photos, hope your assembly goes to plan!
Nice selection of shots. I was in Greenock a while ago at the school they use for TV show Waterloo Road. You cant be doing it right Anne as the teachers in that always seem to have loads of time for sitting around and never appear to have any paperwork. They always have long tea breaks and an endless supply of biscuits.They also wear six inch stilettos in class which I don't remember my own teachers wearing for a long day standing up. You should transfer to that school as it looks a much better deal:o)
What lovely photo's, especially like the snowman :)
Gorgeous Landscapes Anne, glad you found time to share them.
Being bogged down in paperwork is never good a good feeling but hopefully, you won't have to do too much over half term. I hope your Chinese New Year assembly goes well, it sounds like fun. I will be spending half term doing housework as well but do hope to get out for at least one long walk, maybe around the loch in the Ardinning Nature reserve between Glasgow and Strathblane. Lovely photos!
Fantastic snowmen, and beautiful landscapes, it does all look so very pretty. I hope you have a good Sunday, with some time for relaxation. CJ xx
I love the picture of the bird in silhouette, and your close-up of the ice...
Oh and yes, we were in Moffat the other week. No toffee but we did have a big ploughman's lunch!
Lovely to see your snowy and icy pictures! I hope that you have a good half term and that all the work on China goes well. xx
Lovely pictures-I'm a little late commenting but just wanted to say try not to get too bogged down, it's so easy for it to become the most important thing when infact its just a job. (Speaking from experience). Make sure to take time for yourself and be kind to yourself too x
