Our week that was; snow, hot chocolate and ceramics (project 365)


Sunday we went to a ceramics studio and spent the afternoon in the warm decorating plates. I decided to base mine on our Border Collie Spartan - I was quite surprised that it actually looks like a dog!

Monday the first of the snow arrived so it was a cold walk to school.


Tuesday we had quite a few deliveries including a Skylanders prize for Jamster.

Wednesday after school we snuggled up with hot chocolates and marshmallows.



Thursday I spent a lot of time in the garden with Spartan, he seemed a little confused at first by all of the snow but then he enjoyed bouncing about like a lamb in it and eating it!

Friday was a snow day from 1.15pm, I had to collect the Mini Mes early from school after work, so we spent the afternoon playing outside and I transformed the car into Lightening McQueen.


Today was spent in the warm (although we are going for a curry this evening with family) but I took a few snaps of our lovely ice decorations which bring a bit of colour to all of the white!

What have you been up to this week?

  31. I love the ice decorations. What a brilliant idea.
    The ceramic plate is fab. Well done. I keep wanting to go to the ceramic studio near us but fear the boys may be trouble.
    The eyes on the car make me laugh...maybe because I always think they look like boobs instead.
    Thank you for linking up again x
