Ok I give in, icy weather pictures and Christmassy sparkles!

 I love, in fact, absolutely insist on utter tacky ,glitzy ,sparkliness on my christmas tree.This one is mine, all red, gold and green.The children's one started pink, then purple and now is also silvery and blue, over the years and whims of the kids. I always give the kids a new ornament each every year, and will until they leave home, then their decorations go with them, and they will start to give me one each year.
 I feel I should write the rest in blue on account of that being the colour of my fingers after about 10 mins outside taking these pictures! The above one is my melty hand print on the trampoline net. I wonder if the gap is the dent my wedding ring has worn over the years.
 How cold does it have to be for an icicle to frost over again???
 Oh my what a lot of spiders my garden fence invisibly  houses most of the year .I was blown away by the frosted web with festive frosty ivy behind it. Sorry spider, I hope you are tucked away somewhere!
 My shed is on its last legs, slats are falling off ( not helped by a summer of boy den making in there) it is so skewy that there is a big triangular gap above the door and a gap above the window but the ice on the window yesterday was astonishing.Look at the detail nature puts into it. It could be a moon photo or arial shot of some deserted artic region!

 Just a tree 2 doors down- Christmas cardish eh?
Proof that all sized feet kids were out! Although these prints do all appear only to point away from my door, I did in fact let them back indoors! ha ha
 Lastly one of those inadvertent pics which turns into a favourite! I clearly moved the camera while taking a tree shot, but hey, if I get tons of light candy canes then who am I to argue? no calories but extra sparkles- oh yeah!
