A Snowy Weekend…

A Snowy Weekend…

Last week we were on snow watch all week, with talk of it coming our way. Last year I was really unprepared for it and it also went for a long time. Our shopping delivery was cancelled because they couldn’t get through and we were running low of supplies. This year I was not going to let that happen again, and was more organised. I got our shopping delivered a day earlier than normal and I brought extra bread and milk for the freezer.

It was a good job that I did, because the next day we woke up to a lot of snow. It was really deep and the girls school was closed. I will always be grateful that my job, allows me to be flexible and it meant that I could enjoy the day with the girls in the snow and at home. Even if it does then mean, working late at night, as the work doesn’t disappear. I still have deadlines to meet. But I know that I’m incredibly lucky that I can do it once the girls are tucked up in bed.

The girls couldn’t wait to go and in it and we wrapped up warm, got the sledge out of the garage and headed out to meet some friends for some fun in the snow. In previous years when it has snowed, it has snowed overnight and then stopped during the day. But on Friday it snowed continuously all day. Which meant we also got very wet whilst we were out in it. It was still great fun.

When we woke up on Saturday, the snow was still there. It had been really cold overnight, and it had frozen. Of course the girls wanted to go out again, we stayed closer to home this time. Luckily at this age, the girls are just happy to be out in it and they saw some friends who live near us and that made their day.

There is something magical when it snows as a child, I think my girls just assume it happens every year, as they don’t remember a year it hasn’t snowed. I can’t help get caught up in their excitement and the sound of that crunch, as you walk through it.

But, I also then get to the point when I’m over it. The novelty has worn off and I just want to be able to go out in my car!

I wanted to share a few photos of the weekend, as these of the moments I want to remember forever.

    Oh wow it looks like you had soooo much fun. I’m so jealous, I had the sledge ready to be used but we barely got any snow at all. I think that’s it now for this year. You took some lovely photos the kids will remember the fun they had for ages I’m sure.

    What lovely pictures, it looks like you had so much snow! They look so happy to be out in it and sledging looks to be a hit. My son loved it but my daughter had enough after about 5 minutes and her hands got cold lol! Your right though as pretty as it is, once it turns to ice and the paths are so slippery and everything sludgy the novelty quickly wears off lol!

    You got some lovely pictures. Yes, my sisters were completely unprepared for the snow they got last year and were queuing for entry to get food in their nearest supermarket. And I hear you on the getting sick of it! I used to be the same when we lived in Wales.
