Snow's here!

We've had a LOT of early snow today, naturally Tobydog is making the most of snuffling and digging in it, carnage on the roads, public transport ground to a halt, late for work, but my goodness it's so pretty! Feeling all festive tonight!

Crisp winter day walk

When we woke up this morning this beauty was grazing on the field at the end of the street:

Gorgeous weather for a walk out, a little muddy but that's never stopped us!

A short post, because I've really got to get some uni work done! Hope you have a lovely weekend! x

Wedding talk

Hello again, uni work and a new job have been distracting me of late and I've been keeping up to date with your lovely blogs, but not my own! I am just about to be promoted, which is lovely and a real compliment, but terrible timing as I've just started my part time degree and I know this is mad, but we've set a date for our wedding next July too! I've been spending lots of time mulling lots of things over of late, work wise and home wise while we've had an interlude from doing the kitchen.

Mr TTC and I have been in love for nearly ten years, each other's first loves, and yet planning the wedding has really made me reflect on what marriage means! I've loved thinking about music and readings and making it a special day for us, and our family and friends, and the fact that it's a small affair makes it all the more special! Outside of the planning though it's been lovely to take the time to reflect on our partnership, how we've grown up together, and the promise of what the future holds - how exciting!

I'm still thinking about a fiftieth post giveaway, so watch this space - camera is getting a rest as it's out of action at the moment!

Hello again

Sorry it's been so long, the kitchen has taken longer than expected owing to some unexpected problems but I'm back online, we have a working fridge freezer, oven, hob and washing machine but it's still a while off being finished, can't wait til I can show you some final pictures. In fact, this lovely sign Mr TTC did in the kitchen mess says it all:

In the meantime, a huge thanks to Melissa at Country in the Town for these wonderful giveaway prizes, they arrived at a particularly low moment in the kitchen process, thanks :) x

Beautiful things:

Gorgeous mug in situ in the new kitchen:

Autumn is here, but not for long, lots of lovely colours to see on walks with Toby but the leaves are falling fast and we've had some very cold nights.

Luckily my new biscuit barrel is keeping me company, but not for too long as I am having a look in a wedding dress shop this weekend!
