Happy New Year!

Wishing all you lovely blog friends a very Happy, Healthy and Prosperous New Year. Hope you have all enjoyed the festive season?
I have had a mixed sort of Christmas. Had a lovely trip to York, and saw the ice skaters on the artificial rink, I took photos for reference. Some very nice shop displays including the sledges! It's been lovely seeing family we don't always see a lot of through the year. I most crazily have had work to do over Christmas, getting a new project ready for the 3rd Jan for NEW people, this has been exciting and a bit stressful, trying to work around things going off here and there.
I will add a photo of some other work I did just before Christmas, these were nice to work on, I don't appear to have a finished photo, but hopefully you get the gist? I think the eyes needed strengthening?

We have managed to fit a couple of walks in, one was extremely wild and windy, the photos of this walk shows some strange clouds that we saw, they are apparently called Lenticular clouds, it all looks quite calm on the photo, but believe me, we were walking practically horizontal on some bits of the walk! When we got home, the weather man had been inundated with amazing photos of these clouds, they can fool people into thinking there are UFO's in the sky!  It's been strange weather, not very cold, but a bit wet and dreary!
I have finished the work today, phew, and so tomorrow we plan to escape to the country,(Yorkshire Dales) hoping for a leeetle bit of sunshine Please! It's the last official holiday day.
I shall have to wait on the verdict about the new work I have just done til later this next week, fingers crossed! I shall be back to let you know??? X

  3. Happy New Year to you!!! The ice skaters make me long to go ice skating again, it's been YEARS! Of course so far it's been oddly warm here, more like spring than winter most days?? Of course tomorrow they threaten us with cold, we will feel it more as we've no resistance built up to the cold yet!
