Reasons to be cheerful

Two weeks since the snow started falling on Alyth we are enjoying (???) a bit of a thaw today.
With temperatures soaring above freezing point to the dizzy heights of 2 degrees it's a great chance to get the paths and drives cleared up a bit. Icicles have been falling steadily off of door and window frames. My son 'helped' to dislodge a massive icicle yesterday from the back of the house, which in one way was good, ie it's not threatening to pull the drainpipe away from the wall. However it landed on my rotary clothes line and left it totally mangled. Hey ho... I wasn't planning on hanging my washing outside anyway.
The big reason to be cheerful though is that I won the Christmas Window Competition. Yoo Hoo..

I'm really chuffed to have been picked as the best window in town.
Now that the streets are getting a bit clearer of snow I will get out and about and show you some of the other window displays over the weekend.
Wherever you are, stay warm xoxo

Congratulations, Fiona! well deserved. Your window looked lovely and it obviously took a lot of work.

Thanks Fiona. It's lovely seeing people looking at the display and going 'ooh ahh ooh. My window isn't double glazed and no one realises that I can hear everything they say from inside the shop.
