Wow, how time is flying, don't you think? With so much to do, the boys' breaking up next week and so little time left, I think it'll be a full on weekend getting stuff done. Normally I try and get Christmas bits and bobs done in between work, but work has fully dominated my days for the last 6 weeks. I'm hoping over the next few days it will slow down.
Anyway, earlier this week we woke to a really hard frost, so much so, it was like driving the boys to school through Narnia. I wish I could have taken some pictures as it was incredible. I did however, take some when I got home. It doesn't quite have the same visual impact when you're taking closer shots compared to casting your eyes over a wider view.
Apparently, the frost we had was called a 'Hoar' frost which forms when the air cools and the water condenses. Because the temperatures were below zero, it's called a hoar frost. If the temperatures were above zero it would be a dew frost (frozen water droplets).
The hoar frost is recognised by the delicate icy structures which completely fascinated me!
So, there you go, a lesson about frosts!
Whilst on the subject of this week, I took delivery of an early Christmas treat. I had seen on the lovely Folly and Glee's site such a pretty lamp, which I did ponder about getting for a little while. With encouragement by hubby I pressed the purchase button, and hey presto it was mine!
Here it is, pride of place next to the yet to be decorated Christmas tree. The lamp base is a lovely Christmas red and the shade has been made using vintage barkcloth depicting a community collecting maple syrup.
Unfortunately the light is so poor, my photo's don't do it justice.
Thank you Polly, I'm a happy bunny!
Right, onwards and upwards. Have a great weeekend.
