The whole of England is blanketed in white as I create this post, a frozen world which would probably last for a good week or so at least. Nothing major like in Korea, Russia, Norway or Canada where the temperatures can dip to -30c, but enough to cripple the nation for a bit. Majority of schools were closed today and there were travel disruptions (both road and rail) everywhere. Many flights were also canceled at several airports due to poor visibility. Nonetheless, the situation did not stop many from having fun, in particular the children of course. Right after breakfast, my doorbell rang and a bunch of them stood there in their winter woolies, asking my children to join them outside. They had several hours of delight, throwing snowballs at each other and building their little snowman. Until they started to feel the cold creeping in slowly, especially as the snow softened and their socks and gloves got damp. I had the fire-place roaring away and prepared a little lunch for them all, whilst they tore away their wet attire and snuggled up into blankets and sat by the warmth, their cheeks and noses red and flushed.
They had a truly enjoyable time, and that’s what matters most, I love seeing them all happy and content afterwards. As for me, yes, the pleasure of defrosting the car and driving on the icy roads await, that’s the bit I don’t quite like. Also the fact I might slip and fall like I did before, when the snow freezes over and turns into slippery black ice, not much fun there at all! I’m just glad it’s the weekend, whereby I don’t really have to be mobile just yet. And I have enough supplies stored until my next major food shopping. Right, enough description of my frozen little world, I shall leave you with several images I’ve captured today, hope you will like them. Over and out, I’m curling up under my duvet now, there’s a blustery wind blowing out there! I’ll be thinking of my early spring, it doesn’t hurt to dream!!
