Snow!

Look what I woke up to yesterday morning! This is not my picture. This one was taken in the south of the island where the snow lay on the lower areas as well as the tops.
I live up north and although I had my camera with me all day never actually got a chance to take a photo.
The snow was not so low down up north, but the tops certainly had a good covering.
Sometimes it amazes people how different the two ends of this island can be. We're known as the sunny north up here in Ramsey and typically we will have better weather that the south. I remember going out one day to visit with one of my sisters who lives in the south, here in Ramsey it was Beautiful, beaming sunshine and not a vesper of a breeze. 30 miles away in Port Erin there was quite a strong cold wind blowing, I had to borrow a cardigan from Kirsty cause I was cold.
I've known Hunney come home from work in Douglas, which is only 16 miles away and complain of a dull wet day, awful weather, but we in Ramsey had lovely sunshine. See, sometimes it pays to be up North.

I sat with Hunney in the study last night and did a little cross stitch, I think I'll be doing more today so I'll take a picture tomorrow.

Gratitude's
1) The snow is gone.
2) Two days off.
3) My beautiful Island home.
