Jam packed!

Photo - Traffic jam due to snow
Well it didn't take me a whole week to get back from North Wales ... it just felt like it!  The journey normally takes a couple of hours at most ... but thanks to the snow, a jack-knifed lorry and some steep hills it actually took me six hours to get there, although only three of them were spent with the engine running!   I had my camera with me, but there aren't that many ways to photograph dozens of stationary vehicles and by the time we got moving again it was a) dark and b) I was desperate to collect No. 2 Son and return home before we got caught in more snowy jams!

In the meantime here are a few more pages for my JYC album: Wrapping paper first of all ... I buy new every year, and add it to the rolls of sale wrap I bought in January, which combined with the left-over wrap from previous years mean I probably never have to buy any again ... ever!

Now there's a decent sized Christmas tree ... it's been a few years since we saw it for real though!  Check it out (in English) here.

Child No. 3 decided she wasn't fussed about what we put up on the tree today, possibly because there were no brothers around to fight with about decorating rights!

Finally,  I have used the inside of one of the envelopes that my pages are built on - for the programme from tonight's concert.  No photo though as I forgot to take the camera - tsk, tsk what kind of scrapper am I? Just as well that we couldn't actually see my daughter playing thanks to the church layout or I really would have been miffed!
