At the weekend we had a big snow fall,it was rather scarey at the time as I was driving home from the city at the time and I could not even make out the road the snow had fallen so fast.
When I arrived home I found a very red faced happy little boy throwing snowballs and my whole body relaxed at the sight of my 2 boys playing in the stuff that had just had me gripping my steering wheel so tight my hands had set in one position.
I love snow,but not when I have to drive in it!!!
We had the whole weekend with snow and then by monday morning it had all vanished like it had never been here at all.

I am doing a photography course at the moment and we are set projects every week.
This week was night photography and as I was driving back home the other night I saw the churchyard all lit up looking very pretty and as you need either a tripod a VERY steady hand or somewhere to place the camera with a slow shutter speed it meant that I had to dodge down by the side of the church gates and the only shot that was in view was this spooky grave stone
Suddenly this figure appeared making me jump out of my skin but I actually made him jump more than me,I guess i did look a bit odd crouching down besides the grave stones!!!!
We had a great Halloween.I just love this time of year when the nights get all chilly and there is a magic feeling in the air.
We could not face the millions of knocking spooks at our door this year so we decided to go to a theme halloween event and although I was a little unsure how my middle monster would be,he was either going to be mage scared or just unphased by it,you never can tell with Daniel.
The terror trail as it was called was lit by pumpkins and along the way we encountered spooks and gouls who jumped out of the forest trees and Daniel laughed his little socks off all the way round
