See those gold things - they are mirror ball tree decorations. They were reduced to £1.50 and I couldn't resist. Maybe I might think again when they blind us as the sun comes through the window.
I just checked out the forecast for the next week and WOW looks like we might actually get a bit of snow after all. It would be lovely if it comes on christmas day but I am not willing to put money on it as weather forecasters are notoriously unreliable.

I wasn't brave enough to take the dogs out yesterday so they had to make do with a run around in the frozen yard. Today I figured it would be best to just get on with it and take them out. One at a time though because otherwise I would be on my backside more times than upright.

Edited To Add:
Somebody just commented that it looks really peaceful. Anybody who knows where this picture is will agree with me and say that it is anything but peaceful. Directly behind me on the shot is Asda and a very busy main road. I love how we can create an atmosphere through a photograph.
Yes I know it is December and no we don't have anything remotely festive up yet although my son is sat at the kitchen table writing christmas cards as I type this. Bugs have hit big time this week with 4 out of the 6 of us down with a 24 hour sicky thing so maybe I might have a christmas tree picture to show you sometime next week provided I don't get it too.
Instead I have given my blog a christmassy makeover.

In answer to Carmen who asked a question about the wooden foot shape and whether I knit on it. No I don't. It is called a sock blocker and is used for shaping the sock after knitting it but it is also a good way of photographing my socks without putting them on and getting into odd unnatural positions to get the same sort of shot.

and whilst browsing the net I found a link to the actor who will be playing Seth Clearwater in Eclipse - cute little kid.
I don't think I would choose to be in the cinema with the same crowd of people. The 20ish woman sat next to me was obviously drunk, kept laughing at inappropriate moments and didn't have a clue about some of the characters but tried to make out she did. The rest of the audience wasn't too bad but there was a lot of talking during the showing which I am assuming is people discussing certain events in comparison to the book. What surprised me is how young some of the people were. One lady had a young boy with her who was probably around 8 or 9. My guess is that she wanted to see it desperately but couldn't get a babysitter. There were also crowds of girls who I would estimate at around 11 or 12. Personally having read all the books I wouldn't think it suitable for under 13s maybe even older. It gets a bit deep at times especially in Breaking Dawn.

It always puts me in the christmas mood.
and last but not least the dogs at the park this morning. They got into a real tangle with their leads.
