Snow Snow Snow

This week, the weather man had forecast snow here and there and whilst i personally haven’t seen any, as per usual its snowed almost everywhere else, even if it has been just a ‘flurry’. But the news for next week is that a ‘beast from the east’ is on its way bringing ‘significant accumulations of snow’ for much of the east of the country.

Happy Days 🙂

Seriously, who doesn’t love snow??

Okay so maybe i probably like it far more than i should but, i think that goes back to being a kid in the early 80’s and the brilliant winters i remember with snow up above my wellies, making snow caves and tunnels in the mounds my Dad created when he’d cleared the drive, the sledging, the snowmen.

Its safe to say that winters until the most recent haven’t been that great. I can honestly say that i don’t think an inch has fallen in total. But since February 09 its been great.. even my 6yr old now shares my enthusiasm for snow.

You call this snow????

You call this snow Mummy????

Ill never forget that first proper snow we had though, Wriggler was one & half and i couldn’t wait to take him out in it and build a snowman.

    Love your snow pics. We have been doing the ‘I wish it would snow’ dance and will join you in crossing our fingers for some. I miss snow, having grown up in Canada, and I would be so very very thrilled if we could have a good few days with at least 12 inches to go outside and play with the children in. Wishing you a very snowy week!
