It was back to work (at my second job) yesterday, a big change just as I had got into a nice routine with the bear making, but that is life.

On Saturday we went out for the day even though it was freezing cold, the Siberian wind from Russia that comes here sometimes takes a bit of getting used to.
First stop was a bead shop in Haddenham and although they had nice stuff I only got some thread for sewing on little bears ears.
Then it was off to Soham to a huge scrapbooking warehouse. I don't do scrapbooking, my sister does but I sure did manage to find stuff that had to come home with me.
Everything except the paper and pen was on sale so I didn't spend too much money. I had to get the Halloween stuff, such lovely trimmings for the bears and the boxes are always useful.
Then it was off to Ely, I love this city, if we ever have enough money to buy a house I think it will be here. As you drive towards the city you see the cathedral silhouetted on the skyline, of course it is so flat in Cambridgeshire that it is inevitable. I think the cathedral was built on the highest piece of ground because it makes such an impact.
We wandered around the market and looked in the charity shops and by the time we got back to the car we where frozen to the bone, winter has returned, no snow yet but I wouldn't be surprised if we had a bit more before spring gets here.
