Tuesday randoms

Yesterday I mentioned about the men in our road having cleared away a lot of the snow. This morning these piles of snow show some of their efforts. I am extremely grateful to them because it meant today I could drive again for the first time in a week!!
Makes me realise how much I love my little car and how much I rely on being able to go out and about in it.
You can see from the snow left on top of the car (after I'd already been out and come back) how much we've had. There must have been a good 6 inches.
Mum and I went to Sainsburys and did our weekly shop. There were a lot of empty shelves as we were going around because some of the delivery trucks haven't been able to make it to the stores. Fortunately I got virtually everything I wanted :0) - a photo of our fruit bowl which is nicely stocked up again!
And finally, some cupcakes I decided to make this afternoon seeing as I remembered to get Cocoa powder while I was out. They aren't brilliant and have rather large mushroom tops but I don't imagine anyone will complain and I'm pretty sure they'll disappear quite quickly ;o).
Looking forward to a nice quiet night tonight. Mum has passed on a few magazines to me so I might just have a cup of tea and a cupcake while I read one later tonight.
Have a good evening


  1. Mmmmm yum!!! Those look good!!!!

    Glad you are able to drive again :)

    You wouldn't be allowed to drive with that snow on your car over here!!! Thats a big no no here!

    Enjoy your quiet evening! Still morning here and we have been outside playing - now we are back in and I have to do some cleaning up and laundry. We didn't make it to art class or PreK today as Sam and Abby are not feeling well :(

  2. Wasn't it good to get out and about again? Thank you Rhona. I so enjoy our weekly shopping trip and our welcome cup of coffee in Starbucks when we have finished. Here's to next week's trip hopefully without the snow! xxx

  3. Wow, you had way more snow than we did. Ours is almost gone and I can see the lawn again! We have empty shelves in our supermarket as well ~ I think people have been stocking up for a seige!

  4. those look sooo good I'd love
    to have one now! ;D
