We have just spent a delightful if very wet evening in Kew Gardens on the Christmas light trail. It was spectacular and if you get the chance to go, then do!

Both LiveWires were playing in the end of term Rock Steady concert this morning so after taking them to school and admiring the benches in the yard we went into the hall to hear five different rock bands! It was great fun but I can’t show you photos of the children in the band. J was on the keyboard and T on the drums!
It snowed throughout our journey from Norfolk to London which made driving somewhat tricky but the fields all around were beautiful in their white covering.
When the LiveWires came home from school they wanted, after playing in the snowy slush, to make mince pies.
As we arrived at the house today, we were met by a very excited LiveWire dancing about in the snow.
The same snow prevented us driving to London from Norfolk today but it did mean that we could be involved in getting the Christmas tree here, driving around some beautiful snow covered tracks.
L spotted a crow with a broken wing on the path and we stopped so that T could check him out.
A really heavy frost lay on the ground as we went to Blickling House for a walk and the grass, leaves and fungi had beautiful frosty patterns on them.
When we were in the garden centre yesterday, B spent her pocket money on some 3D glasses that made all fairy lights appear to have little snowmen around them. It amused us all that my camera was able to look through the glasses and catch the little men in a photo.
Today I took all the baby hats to the wool shop and was delighted to hear that the Midwife from Treliske Hospital will be collecting all the little hats at the end of the week. We also delivered our two goody packed boxes to one of the Cornwall Christmas box collection points. The idea is to fill them with food for a family for Christmas dinner plus some treats.
I hung some angels today and loved that they seem to be flying. Thanks, A!
When we were in Truro on Saturday, I took two snoods hoping to find the two Big Issue people that we buy from and talk to. They were both delighted to be given a Christmas present – one will be kept by S; the other is to be passed on to someone who needs it more………..
