We've had an interesting weekend! Yesterday morning I was NOT at my best. Thankfully Phil was very kind and loving to me and I cheered up eventually! I am so lucky in my marriage.

In the evening we went round to some friends for a curry - yum.

This morning we went for a long walk in Delamere Forest; weather was grey and trying to snow but it was good to stretch our legs and talk. We passed a frozen lake and I asked Phil if he was tempted to just charge out across it and see how far we would get before it collapsed - funnily enough, he wasn't!

Speaking of frozen things, I noticed a frog trapped below the ice in our pond. I broke the ice but poor froggie was well dead - bloated - ugh. Very sad.

Decorations are coming down today. Christmas is well and truly over!

Aw poor froggy!

I remember our dog (Guinness) scooting across the frozen lake in our local park one time - the ice broke! Hubby waded in and got him, lucky he wasn't too far out cos hubby can't swim! :(

Sad about the frog! I thought they usually went "under" into the mud or something to winter it out.
My hubby and I spent all day together today and it was heavenly!
Glad you were able to spend some Quality Time with your hubby too.

Neat shot of the frozen vine!
