I think if you live anywhere in the UK your weekend has been dominated by snow and ice and freezing cold weather. Perhaps because I come from a land of almost perpetual sunshine, I love this time of the year despite the chaos and disruption that usually come with snow. I just get really excited when I see big fluffy snowflakes falling from the sky, covering my neighbourhood with a white blanket.
So on Friday, when the whole world seemed to be covered in icing I couldn’t wait to go out and explore. I put on my wellies, and about a dozen layers of clothing, and went out in the snow with The Boy. It was so nice seeing familiar sights like our neighbours houses, postboxes and the Oxford canal transformed by the snow.
We of course had a snowball fight; I loved the feel of the fresh, powder soft snow between my hands.
The sight of the nearby meadows made me gasp. It was as if someone had turned off all the colours and everything was white. We walked in the countryside for a little while and then it was back home to defrost.
Do you get snow where you live? Did you enjoy this snowy weekend?
