Just look for the hidden beauty around you. by 

18,12,2010 Saturday 10.10 am harleston, Uk at home.

This morning I came downstairs to a house im sure naughty elves must of been in over night and created havic and chaos in everyroom.

What a way to have your spirits dampened at the start of your christmas holidays and realise only christmas eve is arriving quicker then you ever imagined and you are just not ready.

I walked into the dinning room table strewn with selotape, cards, gifts to wrap and felt even more low spirited then I looked into my conservatory and what did I see.

My windows covered in wonderful ice patterns and flakes left im sure by a ice fairy to lighten my mood and lift my spirits.

So here is one of those ice crystals that made me smile and offer me warmth for a little while.

when you are feeling smothered in grey clouds and christmas pressure to have everything right and done.
Stop look for the little things of beauty that actually make this season beautiful.
To all those that may be feeling over whelmed pause stop and look about you will find it I am sure.
hugs to you all
