Happy Blue Monday...snow is on the way!

So what time do you call this, do I hear you say....? 
Well, we've been so busy preparing for the arctic blast that is going to have us snow bound from Thursday onwards, according to the weather experts! 
I'm not sure I like to know in advance of what's to come, especially when it shows most of the UK in a blue colour!
Not a beautiful tropical azure blue...more a freezing frosticle blue.
I suppose it's only to be expected as we are now officially in our winter months.
So it's time to get busy and prepared! 

Here's my son helping to get yet more wood stored into the woodshed before the snow arrives. Last time it took US seven hours to move the pile of 'lady logs' into the woodshed. If you'd like to check it out and the fantastic game of Jenga we played...then click here
This time I decided that it would be a good tactic not to order delicate beautifully sized lady logs...more huge dude dobbers! 
That way I wouldn't be able to lift them and therefore not have to stack 
(hehe...or should that be more of a MMMmmmmmhhhhhaaaaaa?)

I'd like to just let you know that he wasn't wearing his hoodie until I produced the camera. He knows I don't like him wearing it, so it could have been a little silent protest or more just to wind me up! 
He also had his music blasting out...(possibly scaring all living things within a 50 mile radius) Well like me he can't do much without music but it wasn't of my choice. 
Thankfully he'd make a quick dash to the ipod to change the track when an inappropriate track or lyrics resonated out of the woodshed! 

My son's had a busy day today really, because he's now having to write a report and earlier he took McMuffy for her walk. He'll sleep well tonight! 
(not that he doesn't usually
As you can see McMuffy is wearing her blue tartan coat.

I've got so much to catch up on your blogs and I apologies profusely if I haven't left a comment. I sometimes nip in to take a peek...because basically I'm nosy and I don't want to miss anything. I'll try to let you know that I've been next time, but please forgive me just for these few crazy weeks! 

Why not nip over to Sally over at Smiling Sally's blog to see more Happy Blue Monday entrants...you'll have a great time hoping all over the globe and you never know what will appear! 

Have a wonderful week everyone...and I'll hopefully see you soon

  1. Am I first to comment?! Your son looks to be a busy beaver alright. Did he have to chop those dude sized logs into smaller pieces? I hope not, mum! Love the blue tartan! McMuffy is so stylish and she has an appropriate comment about the cold too. :)) Warm-ish hugs.

    1. Yes you are the first to comment Nan,
      Thankfully my son only has to pile them into the woodshed. No further chopping required. That would have been too much to ask. The kind handsome gentlemen (have to say that Nan in case they read this) chop the wood into lady logs or dude dobbers depending on the customers requirement.

      McMuffy has had the tartan coat for years. My mother bought it for her when we lived in the Middle East! I have no idea why, but it's come in handy now.

      I can't believe it's taken me nearly a week to answer your lovely comment.
      I really need to get my act together!
      Have a wonderful weekend and I'll see you at your place soon.

  2. Hi Nessie,

    Your son is a regular Blue Boy and McMuffy certainly qualifies as a Blue Dog. Stay warm!

    Have a good Blue Monday.

    1. I can't believe that it's nearly a whole week since you stopped off to leave a comment Sally. I really am trying to catch up...I just don't know where the time goes because I never stop honest!
      I hope your week was a good one, enjoy your weekend and I'll see you again on

  3. Arctic blast, no wonder my in-laws cleared out of Edinburgh and down to their sons.

    1. Precisely Bill although I think Edinburgh wasn't hit too badly.
      My daughter also lives in Edinburgh ;D
      Enjoy your weekend!

  4. It looks like you'll be well prepared for the chilling, frosty weeks ahead. Your son and McMuffy certainly fit in with the 'blue' theme. :)

  5. Your doggie steals the show ~ so cute! And love your son choppin wood ~ carol, xxx

  6. Great blue feature, but I love the litte puppy best.

  7. Brrrr We have been told in the South for a temperature drop too but they didn't mention snow yet!.... I hope you have wee McMuffy's hat & scarf at the ready and the Aga on full blast... Hugs May x x x

  8. Glad you have your son to do that heavy work. When the sky is blue it is hard to think of snow isn't it? Hope you don't get so much that you are really "snowed in". McMuffy looks quite fashionable in the cold weather.


  9. McMuffy is so darling in her blue plaid coat. Does she have a coat to match every pair of your son's pants?

  10. He's acting like a typical boy! Keeping him busy is good for him. Hope you don't get too much snow.

  11. Brrrr! Looks cold up there Neesie! My dad's motto was "He who chops his own firewood warms himself twice"!! Gorgeous little doggy all wrapped up nice and warm in a bit of Scottish tartan! Glad to see he isn't sporting a hoodie too.

    Thanks for your lovely comment, and I'm so glad you enjoyed seeing my new ARTHaven and watching the first of my new series of videos. I feel it's the beginning of a new era for me and it's so exciting!


  12. Good Morning Denise!! I don't know what I like better - the building you keep your wood in or McMuffy!!! McMuffy wins by a land slide - I am going to get me one of those little dogs . Love your pictures Sugar.

  13. yes it does look very cold! Such a sweet little McMuffy! and her coat!

  14. The cold and snow has arrived over here--cold, big time! Expecting temps of 20 below this weekend. It is very wise to prepare for hunkering down. ;)
    Muffy looks so cute and son was working hard. I hope you are al safe and warm! :)


I get so excited to see you here and love to read your thoughts and comments.
I always try to answer each one personally (I think it's only polite)
