The weather outside is snowing.

Good Evening ,Have been out to a buffet lunch today at my daughter in laws parents home.  We had some snow overnight and we wondered about going this morning as the road outside our house was still covered in snow as the gritter does not know we live here.  The home we were visiting is in the country so we were a bit worried about the country lane up to their house but it was OK better than ours.  I have taken the above pictures today to let you see the garden as it was looking an absolute picture.  The pictures of Ellen were taken on Christmas Day.  We had a lovely lunch and I have been drinking Champagne so my head is a bit squiffy but I am fine don't know how this will come out though but I am doing my best.  Not very good when I have had wine as I don't drink usually.  I was planning to write to you if you would like about the way New Year was up here in Scotland when we were young but alas is no more let me know and I will do it on Hogmanay. Will go now and have some more coffee Love and take care on the roads if you are going out and about.

Glad that you enjoyed your lunch.  Like you I only drink at Christmas and then very little so it goes to my head!  We still have some snow lying which is now frozen solid but from the sky I do not think there will be any more as it is clear with stars and no snow clouds.
I would love to hear about Hogmanay and how you celebrated it when you were younger and what you know. To my Grandmother Hogmanay was always the big thing, much bigger than Christmas.

Mum used to use the word 'squiffy'! 1 sherry and she was away with the fairies!!! The roads here are not too bad, but some of the side roads, (ours included) are a bit slidy! Tee hee, know all about hogmanay, but if I did not by now he would not be too happy!!! Love to you both, Joan
