Winter’s here

Today has been the coldest day in the lead up to winter so far. The maximum temperature was 13C and it has rained on and off all day. Good weather for staying snug and warm inside. Even Tess, desperate as she was to go out, turned around at the door and came straight back in. She’s doesn’t like her delicate little tootsies getting wet!

I’m feeling a bit – meh! Not inspired hunting for something deep and meaningful, or funny – no luck. So instead, I’m going to share with you a short cobbled together selection of stuff I’ve enjoyed this week :

    1. Thanks for the offer, Brooke 🙂 We get whispers of sun during the day – today is quite lovely, but we had heavy rain last night. I’m not complaining really, we need the rain.

  1. Hottest day of the year here in the northeast US. So fun to see blog posts from other parts of the world/opposite seasons. ☺ I remember that wedding priest video. Did they really not know he’d be singing ? Very sweet. ☺

  2. I’ve seen the wedding video several times. I never get tired of it. But those pandas! OMG! I wonder how much the little buggers weigh! They are so adorable. You just want to hug them. Kind of like koala bears. 😀

    1. Lol ! It’s all relative to where you live. For us it feels cold, for my sister, who lives in warmer climates, its freezing. For people visiting here from Finland, its gorgeous and warm 🙂

  3. 13 degrees and rain, sounds like Summer in Scotland 😉 Would love to go to Finland one day, up into the Arctic circle. Have you been Blessings Joy

      1. always my pleasure especially if Pooh is there, my eldest grew up watching him on video and I have memorised a lot of his wise words…..hunny…did someone say hunny…..visit anytime my dear
