11.28 and the snow is already making a soft blanket on the driveway
In the bleak midwinter, frosty wind made moan,
Earth stood hard as iron, water like a stone;
Snow had fallen, snow on snow, snow on snow,
In the bleak midwinter, long ago.
A verse taken from Christine Rossetti's Bleak Midwinter Christmas carol. And yes it is snowing in this part of Yorkshire, silently and softly it covers everything with a blanket of white and dire warnings on the radio and tv.
Earlier it had looked like this......
But we went shopping yesterday says she smugly and anyway there is a good chance that by the weekend it will have melted away due to a storm that is creeping from Ireland.
Yesterday evening we went to an open evening at a friends/neighbours house there were four couple and a very hot log fire. Lots of food which did not get eaten and lots of laughter. We played a game, lets call it Mr. and Mrs. in which a couple sits back to back answering questions about their relationship; of the two games we played we agreed on most things so had good marks.
They are a youngish couple, and Jon runs an aeroplane business, not sure what but he seems to be able to make good money from it, there is attention to detail which is always a good sign of an engineer.
