The Weekend in Black and White

Before Christmas I slipped on some ice and pulled a tendon in my leg. Many nights were spent sleeping (if that's the right word!) downstairs in a chair. The days were spent scooting about in my computer chair. Then I was lent a pair of elbow crutches - what a difference! Now I can get about a bit more.
These are the crutches, just waiting for me to get up and walk.
Maybe I have too much imagination, but I think they have a very kind and caring look.

The Weekend in Black and White

This pretty silver decoration was a present from our (then) tiny grandson last year.

I hope you all have a wonderful festive season.

Snowy Sunrise

The front of our house faces roughly west.
I was looking out of the window about 9 o'clock this morning just as the sun was rising behind the house.
This is what I saw.

This was the view slightly to my right.

This was a short time later, taken between the two buildings on the far right of the previous photo. The hill is the island of Arranmore, and the houses are catching the glow of the newly risen sun.

I wouldn't mind if we had no more snow this winter, but it can certainly make things look very beautiful.

The Weekend in Black and White

I have some lovely, heavy, dragon bookends.
They sit all the time facing away from eachother.
Today I'm showing them face to face.

The Weekend in Black and White

Two weeks ago I posted about Aileni having a toe operation. He's recovered beautifully, but he hasn't been able to get into the shower yet. Our hand basins are too small for hair washing, so I had a word with my hairdresser (she 'does' men's hair too) and off we went for a wash and cut.

Doesn't he look pleased with himself?

The Weekend in Black and White

We have had a week of unusually early winter. Normally our autumn hangs on past the end of November, and snow waits until after Christmas. This year is different!

I took this photo in our neighbour's garden last Sunday.
