Well it was a few minutes ago when I let Bella into the garden for a wee. She shot down the bottom of the garden and fairly belted back in and her little nose was covered in fresh snow. We took her for a walk in it today and at one point she skidded on some ice and landed on her back! She was up again as quick as a flash though.
Today Pete took some photos of me doing my extreme sewing. We had racked our brains for somewhere to go to do this but a) had no spare time to go far and b) my sewing machine is new and heavy and I did not want to carry it far in a rucksack. In the end I sat up in bed and had sudden inspiration; this is the result.
So this is the photo I sent into the competition, I tried to encourage Pete and Bella to have their photo taken with the machine but it was hopeless. I thought of extreme sewing on the Keswick Launch but was afraid the machine might fall off into the lake....not good for them. So terra firma won my choice of locations. I did contemplate going off and doing a hike with the machine in the rucksack but only for a few minutes before I came to my senses. Anyway, I have now to put up the christmas cards in the lounge, something I don't do until a fair few are in a pile, as only one or two look forlorn.
Those of you following the Radio Cumbria broadcasts can still hear Pete on the link to the right of the blog, but you will need to hurry as they will only be available for a few more days.
