Its gone colder!

A sort of teletubby gingerbread man?
This was just a photo through a shop window, but the effect is weird with the reflection above the smile.  I don't suppose I could have designed this shot if I had been trying.  I love gingerbread and its great with a cup of tea so with the weather getting colder I think of goodies to eat by the fireside.

I have started to feel a bit more like I want the festive season to happen now.  I must admit it takes me until the last week before to really start to get in the mood. Tomorrow I am going hunting in the countryside for greenery to put up in the house; a ritual I do every year.  I take a rucksack and some sharp scissors and off I go with Bella to see what looks like it would make a good decoration. I usually target holly, ivy and fir trees.  Sometimes there are berries on the holly but this year I think the birds have eaten them all.  I hope to put up the tree tomorrow too but I'm not sure if I will have time to decorate it as well, we'll see.

It is a good effect, I'd like to bite his head off, is that wrong? Your photograph in the previous post is very seasonal. We had a bit of snow yesterday and a little today but it's not settled at all.

I don't think it's wrong, my DD used to love biting the gingerbread men I made in a special mould for her when she was small. First the head, then the arms, then legs and lastly the body ha ha.
