I hope all of you that have snow and ice stay safe and warm indoors. Here in North London no snow yet, but it feels so cold. I just want to wrap up warm with a hot drink and dare I say it - not make minis. My fingers are almost to cold to move properly. I have even wrapped my cat up to keep her warm I am not sure if she is pleased or not. Can't please everyone!

Here are my latest creations.

What a last couple of days I have had first I cut my thumb with a cutting blade (I suppose the clue is in the name) and then the internet goes down. Well not only the internet, the phone and the television. I felt completely lost. So I carried on "Keep Calm and Carry On". Making minis was almost impossible with a great big plaster on my thumb - right on the tip. I had to bathe and wash up with an awful rubber glove on. Note that neither my lazy son or partner volunteered to do the dishes. It was completely my fault "Never cut towards you when using a blade" guess what I did. Good news after two days no more plaster, but still sore. Now when I use the blade I am a little more careful LOL.
Thank goodness the internet was only down for about two hours, so I was able to upload some of the items I had been working on and here they are.

Cannot upload pictures this is about the fifth time I have tried to load the above pictures I hope it works this time.

At the weekend I had a bit of a stomach bug which left me feeling too weak to go swimming. So I had to stay indoors resting and making minis. See there is always a silver lining LOL. Will probably go swimming tomorrow as I really miss the steam room. Its my little treat after swimming and in the Winter its the only place where I can say I am truly warm!

Here's what I have been upto, although I had a little disaster with a Charlotte Cake I flattened the piped whipped cream. I was so disappointed. Well I have scrapped out all the cream and will start again tomorrow.

My luck seems to have run out! what with breaking my glasses, now my kettle has finally given up the ghost. So I am temporarily reduced to boiling a saucepan of water for a much needed cuppa tea. I know it probably doesn't take more than a 5 minutes but we are so used to the superfast electric kettle that it seems ages. Then I spill at least 1/3 of the water trying to pour it into my cup. My new glasses have arrived and everything looks too bright and I feel a little dizzy. I prefer the old ones I was wearing.

But all said and done I am still working and one must count one's blessings. Here's a sample of what I have been upto.

Could Not See A Thing

The other day I was putting on my glasses when I noticed they were bent again, so as usual I decided to bend them back into shape. Disaster they snapped in half, after a moment of unbelief I realized I had better find an old pair of glasses fast. At first I could only find a pair that I would not be seen dead in. Its funny how quickly we go off certain looks eg tortoise shell rimmed circular specs. Then luckily I found my last pair. Alls well I am waiting for my new glasses to arrive. Well I say alls well I need varifocals, but have decided on two pairs of specs one for near work and one for distances. I must get myself a pair of reading glasses. I am walking around with everything at arms length and I still cannot read it probably.

This is what I have been working on.
