Snow, sun and blue skies

We've got a good covering of snow here in West Yorkshire and it's still coming down.  However we also have sun and blue skies today ;-)  Thought I'd share a few pics.  If you're wondering what the contraption in the back garden is it's the kids' trampoline with the netting hanging off, probably stay like that till the weather gets warmer as I'll need to try to stitch the elasticy bits back on, have already done this but you know how rough kids can be, they use the netting as walls, not just as a safety feature :-/  Ooh it looks like lots more snow today as the blue sky has just disappeared while I've been typing, the sky is all white now, well off-white!

Thought I'd show a sneak peek at something I've made as a surprise for someone; don't know when it'll get posted 'cos I'm not inclined to dig the car out and clear the pavement to get onto the road.  Though DD is mobile and she needs to go to the post office sometime so I can get her to post it.  Can you tell what it is yet?

Yes you did get a bit of snow - well so did we - too much if you as me! I don't know what you have made - quite intriguing!

It looks like a string bag but no doubt it is nothing like that.I cleared the road in front of my drive yesterday, doing my community bit,but it is just as bad again today so not doing it again!!!!!
Hope you are managing to keep warm knowing what you are like about the cold.
Hugs Pat xx

It looks like one of those things you fill with ice and put on a sore head LOL! Can't wait to find out what it really is.

We've lots of snow, up to our knees, literally. No idea what it is and because I opened the bar early and have already had two glass of wine, it could be anything, hic hic xx

It's a string vest!!!
When I is a lady of leisure like you is, will be looking forward to watching the snow and not having to go out. Been leaving home looking like eskimo Nell this week. Don't mind the snow, hate the ice which usually follows, just wish the council would pull thir finger out and keep the roads clear then there wouldn't be pandamonium like yesterday, but luckily I was ok getting home
Hope you've got your heating cranked up.
Looks like you had a good time at Harrogate too.
DD is supposed to be going to London with the GG's this weekend, have to have her at the rail station for 5.45, will be just like a normal working day.
Take care hun.xx

Your snow photos are awesome. I always love it when I see how others live. Looks like you really got dumped on. Hope you are unburied by now. BTW, I have NO idea what is in the blue netting.
