I have been trying all afternoon to get a slideshow from Photobucket to play on my blog and I cannot do it - so frustrating! I have asked on Shimelle's class forum if anyone can help and until that time I cannot do the post I want!
Apart from that I have spent the whole weekend Christmas shopping, doing jobs around the house and visiting my parents, which was nice as I haven't seen them for ages. We had a tremendous hail storm here yesterday, which knocked loads of pebble dash off the side wall of the house. In fact, once the hail had melted it still looked as if there was hail on the ground there was so much pebble dash there! The photo below shows the hail on the ground and the size of it compared with a 2p piece!
One thing the hail and the mega winds did not manage to dislodge though were the berries on our holly tree. I have never seen so many on it - I wonder if the old wive's tail that this means it will be a hard winter is going to be true? Anyway, I will leave you with a couple of photos of our lovely holly tree.
