No overtime this week so the usual walk with the dog after work. It is quite nice to get out normally. But we set foot out the door with a blue sky and within less than two minutes we had a total white out with snow. Twenty minutes of a walk and nearly two inches of snow had fallen.

Had won a prize back in November from musclefood it turned up today but had cost me £1.50 in excess postage as they underpaid on it, prize itself was worth less than £2 so I was not at all amused. Have pm'd them on Facebook and they offered me £10 off of an order, but need to spend more than £10 before I can claim the discount and also need to pay postage. Apparently they did this to quite a few others as well. Others got offered higher amounts but regardless it is not acceptable policy and I feel well conned.

DD1's birthday. We have a firm believe in our family that a birthday is not a birthday without a cake. So Fifi had said she was going to make her mum a Harry Potter cake, but she went away for a long weekend and then went to her friends overnight on Monday. So DD3 messaged me to ask me to pick one up for her, so we got another picture cake from Intercake, their cakes taste great, are good value for money and you can personalise it with a picture of your choice and then add borders, writing etc.
I feel cake decoration manufacturers should make + and - signs so she could have had 40-1, just cos I am rotten like that....lol

Blew a gale and snowed on and off most of the day. So got in plenty of cross stitching and competition entering done. Dixie loves to spend time sitting in the sun (when it comes out) on the back of the couch. Does tend to woof a bit at some of the people passing but not at them all.

This little madam likes to chew anything she can pick up, and likes to pick up lots of things. Today she decided she would start on this mornings post.
Have had a few nasty patches of eczema on the palms of my hands for about three months now. Nearly gone, an awful lot better than they have been. Been using steroids twice a day and a good quality moisturiser about thirty times a day. No wonder parents cannot get children cleared up as I never thought to moisturise my kids every half hour when they had flare ups. Being on my hands does not help right enough as getting wet regularly.

DD2, SIL2, Ziggy and the dog down for a few hours today, going out tonight and then back here to sleep. We went for a walk down the park to exercise the dogs and get Ziggy some fresh air and exercise
Was a good test for Dixie having more than one person and another dog here at the same time. She was popped into her cage with the door left open for her a few times for getting herself distressed but calmed down quickly enough and came back out when she wanted too.
