Frosty outside…cosy inside

It has been a very frosty day in this part of the world.  We have had a thick covering of white all over the cars, roads, fields and trees. I took these photos on an early morning walk.

It was my big little girl’s first ever Christmas celebration at preschool this morning. She sang carols and was a snowflake in a dance. By the end, my cheeks were hurting from smiling so much. On the short drive home through the countryside it felt like being in a scene from a wintery postcard. The sun was setting theatrically behind some icy clouds, giving everything a magnificent orange glow. When we came back we got cosy in the house. We lit candles, the lights on the tree were twinkling and outside everything was still covered, frozen still. I made stew, the baby slept and everyone else just pottered around. I wish we had more days like this.
