The first five people to respond to this post will get something made by me! My choice. For you.

This offer does have some restrictions and limitations:
- I make no guarantees that you will like what I make!
- What I create will be just for you.
- It’ll be done this year (or better: I’ll really really try to get it done this year. Prodding is permitted).
- You have no clue what it’s going to be. It may be a story. It may be poetry. It may be some kind of music. I may draw, paint, or photograph something. Most likely I may handmake something and mail it to you. Who knows? Not you, that’s for sure!
- I reserve the right to do something extremely strange.

The catch? Oh, the catch is that you have to repost. We can all make stuff!!

Snow!

Snow Day!

Wow, I think there are thousands of happy children today. It hasn’t snowed properly for years now, but up here in Birmingham we woke up to a white-out, and it’s been steadily snowing most of the day. Brrrr, it’s cold too!

It’s really nice to see everything covered in snow. I don’t know what it is about it, but I find snow absolutely beautiful. Especially untrodden snow. But I have an internal conflict about untrodden snow; should I be the first to have the satisfaction of walking across it, feeling the crunch beneath my feet and seeing a single pair of footprints behind me… or do I leave it to be beautiful and blank, like a blank piece of paper?? More often than not I will leave it so I don’t ‘unspoil’ it.. only to walk past it later to find that it has been kicked about and is tainted with gravel or mud.

I think it is going to freeze tonight, which will cause problems on the roads tomorrow. Right now they are just wet or slushy, tomorrow I think they will be icy. I’ve already told James () if he can’t get the car into the road and turned around safely, then he shouldn’t drive to work, he can work at home instead! I’m a caring wife, aren’t I? Of course, this has the added benefit that I don’t have to trudge home in the cold at lunchtime to let out!

I didn’t get the day off today, but I did get to go home early! All I can say, is YAY FOR SNOW!
