and the new winner is.....

Still no taker for the ProMarker skin sets, so I drew again, and the name that came out of the hat this time was

RUFUS

I breathed a sigh of relief, because Rufus is a very faithful blog visitor, so I am pretty sure that I will get an email sharpish from her..........I hope! Email me with your address,  and I will get them in the post. I have some more giveaways coming up, so don't despair, it may be your turn next...


No card from me today (again), not wanting to curry sympathy (oh, why the heck not!) but flu and crafting don't work very well. However, I have some antibiotics now, so wait for the miracle healing...In the meantime, although it won't look very impressive to friends from Canada and the Northern states, here is our big (for the UK) snowfall this week, looking out at our back garden.....



But of course, not everyone stays warm and cozy indoors, like children everywhere, here are my grandchildren enjoying the snow............the photos of Max and Milo were lifted from Facebook....

Milo dragging his sledge.....





and Max about to launch himself downhill......



Kiki - even at eight, that child manages to look stylish in any situation!



and Monty discovers the joys of a snowball fight....

Thanks for the great pics... I love the snow and patio. You are having more snow than us. Hee! Hee! The kids are growing so much....Love the card also. Hoping you feel better soon.

It must be nasty if you managed to get antibiotics, my docs won't give them out for flu. Feel better soon.

Looks like the children are having a great time in the snow. Hope you are feeling much better when the antibiotics kick in. We are still waiting to see if we get any snow in the Pacific northwest. So far we are having sunny days but cool weather 6C.

Fabulous photos of your snow and the kidlets. Hard to believe you have more snow than we do in Toronto although we are super, super cold. Glad you have some antibiotics - feel better fast.
Hugs!

Oh thanks for sharing the pictures of the kids. So darn cute!
We had a bit of snow here too, but luckily the big snowfall is a bit south of us and we only got a little bit. It's the cold that is getting to me. Looking at the converter online it is about -13C here right now. And the older I get the more I hate the cold.
