11th Birthday!

It's been a bit hectic here but have now handed out last of commissions, postal one were sent out a while ago and hopefully will make it in time despite royal mail being so behind.  Still have things to work on though as I have commissions for jewellery needed in January :0)

It's my son's 11th birthday today, time has really flown can't believe he has got to an age where he is old enough to go senior school, my other son was born in July so he started seniors a month after turning 11.  I took him and some of his friends to watch Harry Potter at the cinema yesterday (school today) before coming home for party and cake.  I think they did very well sitting still for 2 and half hours, it's a long film, and quite sad had a tear in my eye.  Need to watch part two now, must find out when it's due to be released.  The grandparents are coming round later for a second cake and family party, must get on with cleaning the house before Granny arrives!

Winter garden and cats

As I'd shown you our tree with it's Autumn colours on I thought I would take a photo of it in it's winter coat.  Pretty but cold.

And some other photos from in our garden, I couldn't believe how much it had snowed in the night, no one our road has moved their cars yet, but then again you you can't tell any difference from the pavement the road and the front gardens.

 The boys thought I had gone out before they woke up and built this pyramid lol, that's just the way the snow fell though.

This is how most of our cat deal with the snowy cold weather, apart from Bramble our oldest who still sleeps all night outside and only occasionally comes in for a cuddle and a stroke, and to be fed of course.

Can you tell which way up she is?
