A Cold and Frosty December Morning

Oh my but its cold out there today. At 6:00 am this morning I took pity on my youngest son, and in temperatures of -4 degrees C, very slowly on untreated roads, I drove him to work. He normally goes on his push bike. I'd been out quite late last night at Susan Dixon's Quilter's dinner and I didn't have to get up this morning so I'm expecting lots of good mummy points for this selfless act :) I know that these temperatures are nothing to what other countries have to cope with but I'm a total wimp when it comes to the cold and driving in it.

Later on this morning I took the some pictures, it was bitterly cold and very foggy, thankfully the fog has lifted now.

This is the view from my kitchen window.

I love the little ice crystals that form on leaves and plants.

Went to the Heaves Hotel for the aforementioned dinner, the food was superb, the staff friendly and welcoming, and the company were, as ever with quilters, great fun. We had a choir on the stairs singing Carols for us before dinner and sang Carols around the piano with the choir after. Met up with old friends not seen for a while and hopefully made a few new ones too. Many thanks to Susan for arranging it all.
