It snowed! Proper stamp in it, chuck it at each other, substantial snow! Doesn’t it make everything look prettier?  ^_^


In the afternoon when I was feeling less fatigued (how can sleep make me feel fatigued?!!!!) me and the bloke ventured into town to do a bit of shopping and get some rice and three (curries) from This and That.


You should probably Google SSOSVA


What a fantastic sentiment!

I bought a string of fabric parrots with little beads separating them with a bell on the end and a string of sparkly fabric hearts, also with beads and a bell, from that crazy-cute shop Oklahoma in the Northern Quarter. Mum was delighted with her prezzie but I forgot to take a picture. Similar below, found on Flickr.

We were delighted to see a beautiful sunset on the bus ride back. The sun appeared as a giant glowing red orb, situated between two buildings it was so low on the horizon it looked as if it were about to rest on the floor. I held up my camera and….A bloody double  decker bus parked right in front of my view -_-

I did get this rather cool shot though.


Later in the evening it rained heavily which made the windows look like they were covered in thousands of tiny diamonds.


This has made me realise how long it’s been since I’ve done a photo-story for all of you lovely lads and lasses!

    I want to play in snow! We’ve still only had a light dusting over this side of the country but I’m quite enjoying the Spring weather now. This photos looks great – especially like the capture of the rain on the window. 🙂

      Thank you, I always sit there thinking it looks pretty so I finally took a piccy. It’s nice that you are enjoying Spring weather, we are getting lots of sun now but it’s deceivingly chilly.
