It does make me laugh at how panicky people get when they think there is a chance they won't be able to get to the shops for a couple of days Thursday night, on a quest for buy a few essentials, I stumbled into Tesco. I admit I had totally forgotten it was due to snow that eve, and although I had heard rumours I didn't really believe it would happen! As I wandered the aisles I noticed how busy it was, there were far more staff out, filling the avenues of shelves with produce. It took a while for the penny to drop as to why it was so busy, the SNOW! Oh my word, the shop was heaving, people rushing around filling their trollies with necessities such as toilet rolls and beans. The thing that made me laugh however amongst all the madness was that of all the things for people to feel essential to buy in such a situation were custard tarts! I mean honestly, have you ever been stuck in the house for a whole day and thought you were going to slit your wrists if you could't get your hands on a custard tart? Well?? I confess that I have never felt this worried, I have never felt the need to sink my teeth into the custardy tart, in fact I have never really liked them. A strange thing over came me all of a sudden, the immediate need to own a custard tart! I must be missing out, All those shoppers must know something I don't, Maybe they have healing or calming powers, maybe they de-ice your garden? I will put it on my list the next time snow is forecast Toilet rolls, beans and custard tarts!
We did get out and enjoy the snow, (without any custard tarts) We even managed a walk through our local forest, it was so beautiful, and barely touched out there. It was tremendously inspiring aswell!
I managed a little crafting in between snowy adventures. Here is a SnowBob! He is so friendly and an awful lot warmer than a real snowman!!
I have also been busy creating AlphaBobs! They are learning to spell right now, here is a small band of Bobs who have managed to arrange themselves correctly without loosing their letters!
Believe me it took a long time to organise them!!!

My latest creative achievement however is this fab bag! I love it! It is made from upcycling my daughters old jeans. She grew out of them years ago and i saved them as I loved the decoration so much, so glad I did. All the pockets are useable and it even has a large one inside. The strap is extendable and even the buckles are recycled!
