Welcome to my blog. Thanks for dropping by. Hope you'll stay and enjoy reading about where I've been and what I've been doing!

I don't mean this to be a replacement for personal emails, but it gives me the chance to put up photos and my scrapbook layouts, so I don't block up your in-boxes, or have to send the same photos and stories to everyone separately!
Thanks, and welcome, to the followers of my blog. I'm very honoured that you enjoy it. Drop me some comments from time to time! It's good to hear what you think about the posts. Come back again soon.

Thanks also to Mary of Mary's Mixes for doing all the work on the blog's heading. You are great, Mary!

Still snowing!

It’s still snowing, and tonight the wind has got up a bit so that the falling snow is being blown around in great swirls, mixed with the snow blown off the roofs.  The swirling waves of snow somehow remind me of the Aurora Borealis.

Thank goodness I don’t have to be going anywhere in this weather though!  I haven’t been out for days now, thanks to this cold!  Actually I  had a visit from the doctor today and he says I have some “crepitation” going on in my right lung – I believe that means crackling – so I am now on a course of antibiotics!  It’s not just a cough and a cold any more, but I should start to feel better in two or three days!  Thank goodness for that!

So just a couple of wintry photos for you today, both taken from my window earlier.  The house with the turret on the hill used to be a hotel but for a good few years now it has been a private house.  Once upon a time it belonged to the family who also owned my flat, maybe even had it built.  I’m not sure.

And this is Tweed Bridge!

Oh I wish I could stop coughing!  I can actually hear that “crepitation” myself!  It makes me want to cough more!

Talk again soon.

Feel better soon Evee! Love seeing your photos. Thanks for posting even when you aren't up to par. We are having our first cold dip this week here in Baton Rouge. May get to 26 degrees F (-3.33C) tonight and down to 19 degrees F(-7.22C) on the weekend. Goodbye to all the plants of fall! That's the coldest it's been here since 1968. Brrrrrr!
