I live in the UK. In a big valley in the North West. This means the mountains to the North and South get the snow and we get the shelter. And lots of rain.
If it snows, it falls lightly, and melts as soon as it hits the ground. Occasionally in February we get a flurry that sticks for a day or two.
But tonight something magical happened.
Our Christmas tree
My Significant Other and I have spent the evening with his two beautiful daughters. Every Christmas we get together and have a special Christmas. We eat too much party food, exchange presents, and watch a Christmas film. I totally love it. This year (and last year, because we love it so much) we watched "It's a Wonderful Life".
Tonight, just as James Stewart was standing under the Christmas tree at the end of the film and the Christmas ornament jingled as Clarence Oddbody AS2 gots his wings, it started to snow. Not in the film, but outside the window. We had the curtains open and we could see the huge flakes as they floated in sheets. It was beautiful. And very special.
I love red hearts
So two Christmas miracles happened in my neck of the woods today.
It snowed tonight.
And the car made it home safely through a snow storm with a totally flat rear tyre.
I hope you have a wonderful Christmas.
I'll be back in a couple of days with pictures of the presents I have made for everyone. It's causing me great difficulty not to be able to splash them all over a post right now, but I don't want to ruin anyone's surprise in case some of my family and friends are misguided enough to read this blog...
