Snowy days!

More snowy days Jan 2013 (8)

I can't remember the last time I had a snow day! But two in one week?! Wowzers! We have had snow on and off since last Tuesday. My usual ten minute journey home took over an hour as the roads came to a standstill. We just don't deal very well with snow here.
My journey home 15.01.13 010

The forecast is predicting a weekend of cold, snowy weather, so I don't think that Mr JK and I shall be venturing out. We'll light the fire and batten down the hatches. I have plenty of knitting to keep me occupied too. I received a lovely surprise package from Beki yesterday. We have swapped yarn and fibre in the past, and Beki sent me a skein of Socks that Rock yarn in a perfect colourway for Mr JK. She thought it might cheer me up after reading about the house sale falling through just before Christmas. What a sweetie!

She sent this badge too, just perfect for Florence and all her yarny antics!

The badge that says it all!

But what does Florence have to say about it?
Me? Play with yarn? No way!! Not when it's making such a comfortable bed for me!!

All those packed boxes and nowhere to go.Such a shame.We had our house up for sale last year.We had lots of viewings but no takers and abandoned it.
Keep warm and lots of knitting.We have got quite a bit of snow here in North wales.

I am shocked! Flo has reached new levels of comfort/cheekiness, but still manages to look so cute! We've had snow in Belfast today, and I'm bored with it already. Hope it thaws for everybody soon.

Flo looks completely contented.
