I love this time of year and today brought on our first real snow which always makes me feel like a child again, pressing my nose against the window and wishing that I could go outside and make snow angels without the neighbours thinking I am completely mad!
So, what has been going on round here the last weeks?
Well, there were two of these in the last week...
And I was spoilt with lots of...
And plenty of these, all of which were so carefully chosen and were totally perfect...
Can you see the Prima flowers? And the ribbon flowers? And the shadow, display box that I had so admired on Libby's blog? Yep, all mine!
My mum was over to visit for the weekend and we had a lot of fun.
Christmas market season is officially open so first stop: Dortmund for a Glühwien
A wander round to admire the lights
Dinner at the newly modernised Duisburg Innenhafen (harbour) at Mongo's which is our new favouirte place to go - Mongolian BBQ. Scrummy!

Of course, all this means no scrapping for several weeks.

I think that I'm caught up now. Is it me or has somebody stolen the last few weeks? How prepared are you for Christmas (gulp!)?
