My day and the weather.

                     This morning when I got out of my warm cosy bed the cold greated me and made me want to jump back into bed.I hate the bit in between getting out of bed and getting to the bathroom,we sleep in the attic bedroom so by the time Iv got from bed to bathroom on a cold morning like this Iv got goose pimples on me goose pimples even when the heating is on.The village was sparkling white with frost and nobody about,after stocking the coal fire and feeding pussy cat Patchouli my kettle had boiled and a cup of tea was very welcome, I cannot function properly until I have had my first cuppa, don't like coffee first thing its gotta be tea.I had to go out to the next village which is only 10mins by car and the reading on the dashboard told me the temperature was minus 6.I know its been colder in other parts of the country but I did sit and shiver until the car had warmed up.
           To keep myself warm I have cleaned the bedrooms changed the beds and got all the washing done the ironing will be done tomorrow to keep me warm.It started to snow at 2.30pm and as I type this at 10.25pm it hasn't stopped so just like most of the country we are white over.It does look very pretty but it causes so much havoc every where it just causes worry.My daughter and her family went to see friends for a birthday party today and I was on tender hooks until I got the phone call to say they where home safe and sound.
          Well we will see what tomorrow brings, I will have a walk with my camera and post some pics like I'm sure lots of bloggers will do but I think its always nice to see others pics .Iv got me bed socks on and extra blanket on the bed, going to fill the hot water bottle now and put that in,wont be long until I turn in tonight I'm tired.Hopefully I will be able to sleep better than I did last night when I seemed to count sheep all night .Pussy cat Patchouli is now looking at me as if to "when are we going to bed"so I better shift myself.
   Good night my friends sleep well and keep warm.Love Jill xxx
P.S. Why is it when ya cold and could do with a hot sweat ya dont get one? xx

C is for a Challenge.

This morning as I was sat eating my Cereals for breakfast I was wondering what I could do for ABC Wednesday,I had not planned anything so it was going to be a bit of a Challenge for me.So as I pottered on putting the washing in and Cleaning the Coal fire out I thought why not see how many Chores I did and items I could find during my day beginning with C. After having Coffee I went to the village shop which is at the other side of the train Crossing ,it is Called the Coop,I should of taken my Camera to show you where I went.I bought a Card to be posted for a friends birthday,a pkt of Chocolate biscuits and some Cheese.
    I Cleaned my sitting room one item that  was dusted was the Chandelier which hangs from the Ceiling and has some Crystals hanging from it. Once I had finished the room looked all Comfortable and Cosy.
     This little dish has some of my Crystals in it, the orange on is a Carnelian .
    After lunch I spent a Couple of hours at my sewing table finishing off some Cushions I have been making.

        These are the finished ones many more to finish yet,Im loving all these Colours.
     I had a dust and hover around our bedroom and lots of C's Caught my eye.On this Chest of draws is a Cotton Cloth with a Collection of my China,a Cross stitch picture, a Cross which holds a Candle.

Also there is a Child's rocking Chair with 3 little Cushions on.

     This Cross trainer is in our room,I don't use it as often as I should but my 3 grand Children love to use it,bless them they are Clocking the miles up for grandma.
           Came aCross this book one of my favourite foot ballers Cantona,I know he isn't everybody Cup of tea but he has Collected quite a few Cups for the Clubs he has played for.
                     This Cross stitch is one I did a few years ago,I love the words they mean so much.

       This rocking Chair I have had since I was a teenager, it has my grandmas Crochet blanket and some Cushions on it.

             5 of my favourite Cd's,one is Eric Clapton and another is Cat Stevens.

                            These are my Chill out Cd's.

                This little Cupboard was bought at a Car boot sale,love the China Cups on top.

                  Some of the many Cups I own.

                The Clock that lives in the Kitchen above the Cooker.

               As I was setting the table for our evening meal I placed the Cutlery on the table Cloth.

                 Drained the pasta in the Colander.

      Because I am Counting the Calories at the moment I have to keep the Crisps tucked away out of sight in a Cupboard,my favourite flavour are Cheese and onion.
           The only Cheese I try to Consume is the laughing Cow Cheese at the moment,light and Creamy.
          I have Changed the Calender ready for morning.
              As I put some more Coal on the fire I Caught sight of a Candle I had lit earlier beside my little Cauldron,

                      and a Cheeky pussy Cat Patchouli Curled up Cosy keeping warm.

                    Then as I stood up I noticed I am wearing my silver Celtic Cross which is on a silver Chain.
         Phew that was a Challenge,all those C's.Now I am Curious to see what your C's are so I will sign off for now and go and have a look.You all take Care of yourselves and keep warm,bye for now Love Jill xx
