Eight Hours of Daylight.

Hello Lovelies , hope you are keeping warm if you are in the ice box that is the U.K. at the moment. We haven't had much snow in these parts but it is exceedingly cold.
Yes the days are very cold but starkly beautiful ,loving the bare oak tree against the blue sky.......

Tomorrow is the shortest day and the sun is setting at about quarter to four. This is Sundays sunset .....

And today's.....

On work days I don't see any daylight at it's nice to have a bright smiley face near the front door to welcome me home...

We've had this little fella since before children , he always makes me smile :0)

Five sleeps to go !

P.S. Thank you so much for all your lovely comments and advice about Nannas' blanket. I've started a border and I will of course show you once it's finished.

Also thank you to my kind generous bloggy friend Emma for the Christmas goodies..

The choccy was delish, and the gingerbread man looks great on the tree :0)


  1. Hey Jacquie, can't imagine what it's like to have such short days ......... Lovely photos though.
    Your snowman light is very cute and welcoming.
    Lovely to find little treats in the mail. That gingerbread man looks good enough to eat.
    Have a lovely Christmas and best wishes for a happy and creative 2011.

  2. Hope you have a lovely Christmas full of comfort and joy . Keep warm xx

  3. Lovely pics as usual. Can't wait to see your nana's blanket all completed, what a good eye for colour she had x

  4. The 21st December always makes me happy with the thought of the days becoming longer from tomorrow onwards.... Wishing you all a wonderful, warm and cosy Christmas xox

  5. Lovely photos. I'm always disappointed with the shortest day because I expect to see a difference straight away but it takes a few weeks to notice anything. But the hopes there!

  6. Wishing you and your family a truly wonderful Christmas. I hope you have a great day.
    Much love x
