Finally got to watch a film last night that I recorded at Christmas. Nice to see a few Christmas ads (fast forwarded through the ads till I saw a Christmas one).

That happened us last weekend watching some bits we'd recorded before Christmas, drove the Mrs insane when stopping fast forwarding to watch the Guinness & Dunnes christmas adverts

Was only thinking that when walking up to the office when I got off the train. Had the feel of weather more suitable for a few days before Christmas than for a few weeks after.

Enjoy it while you can, the weekend is to be a shocker.

It’s snowing heavily in parts of the country today. Very festive.

Oh I wish it would snow!

I'd make a snowman. Even put a Santa Hat on it!

And our outdoor lights are still in position, we could switch them on. So festive!

Crossing fingers, hoping for snow ....

Was snowing this morning when I was dropping the little lad into Montessori, he was saying all the way in that he couldn't wait to get home to build a snowman. Poor guy

Someone yesterday put up on an Instagram story a video of it snowing outside and the song they had playing was Paul McCartney's "Wonderful Christmastime".

It definitely brought a smile to my face!
