So, my child & I ventured in this morning to find this!

It's so pretty but not the most accessible car park in the world :(
Anyone got a snow plough???

With more snow due this afternoon/evening 
we'll not be hanging around today I'm afraid.
Apologies to all, 
I can't tell you how cheesed off I am :(

We have Mulled Wine or Belgian Hot Chocolate
for anyone popping by today!

Chicken Soup 12 Days of Christmas #3

Here's my offering for the
12 Days of Christmas Recipes
over on the Chicken Soup Blog :)

Here I used last years K&Co Ornament Pad.
This Years is here in more traditional colours.
I added a bell (thanks Julie!), some Ric Rac
(available in store) and some Crystal Stickers

I made it!

into work!
The Ashford Road is clear & the slope into the
car park is gritted. Currently the car park is snowy but not too bad.
There is a possibility someone will clear it for us later.
Please take care!

The Good news is we will be open for business tomorrow
and are hosting the Make & Take, Mince pies & Mulled Wine
that we had to cancel from Thursday night.

If you want to take part it will cost just £1.50
which will be donated to Demelza Childrens Hospice.

Pop in anytime between 10am - 4pm.

Are you creating Tims 12 Tags of Christmas?
