My daughter in Paris isn't feeling very happy at the moment, as she was due to fly in to Devon this morning, but, because of the snow, the airport has been closed. She was looking forward so much to going out this evening with a group of really close girlfriends, as one of them is celebrating her 40th birthday today.
AND - she had ordered all her Christmas presents for everyone who lives over here on-line, and the boxes are filling my dining room at this very moment. Obviously, the plan was that she was going to wrap all the pressies and then deliver them to everyone this weekend. So we are going to have to speak on the phone in a little while and go through everything together, so that I can do the wrapping for her.
I believe my pressies are there as well, so she has asked her sister (who lives closeby to me) to wrap mine, although I'm not sure that she will be able to get down here because of the snow.
So my thoughts today are with all those whose travel plans have been disrupted by the severe weather conditions.
Here are a few photos of our snowy garden, taken earlier this morning.
