Is it spring yet?


I think I must have fallen asleep, I do hope I wasn't snoring too loud.

Apparently the snow that was here has gone and there is new snow here instead. I was not entirely convinced that I had been asleep that long but Bramling dragged me outside to see the snowdrops just pushing their little heads through the ground so I guess I must have nodded of for quite a while.

I also seem to have missed the first workshops of the year so I made up for my absence by helping Her Ladyship tidy up the last of the Christmas stock and dust the shelves before rearranging the shop display for spring.

It can be quite a dirty job especially when there's snow outside and the floor gets wet so all the dust gets wet and sticks to my feet as I pad about the floor. I shall have to fill the bucket with some warm soapy water and wash them later on.

His Lordship is snuffling away in front of his computer with a head cold…I do hope I don’t catch it…not with a nose like this!

Never mind the oil burner is steaming away in the corner with some tea tree and eucalyptus oil in it, so hopefully that will help, it makes the place smell lovely too…perhaps I could use some on that smelly old goblin.

“Bramling…oh Bramling…are you busy?”

Chilly for June...

I do like a good toddle along the beach but it's proving a little difficult at the's so cold the sea has frozen!

I do feel sorry for poor must make it well nigh impossible for him to catch any fish.
I wonder if I should take him some hot chocolate and a doughnut?
Perhaps some sardines would be more appropriate...then we can have the hot chocolate and doughnuts ourselves.
I shall just go and put the kettle on...

A good excuse...

By golly it's cold out there.
There's not much doing in the Studio just now so He Ladyship suggested I put on my socks and wellington boots and went to play in the snow, so here is a photograph I took of my good friend Wheredid enjoying this frosty weather.

I'm not a great lover of snow...far too cold and damp for my old bones...however it is a good excuse for a steaming mug of hot chocolate when one returns indoors.
