Actually I’ve been rather enjoying our unusually large amount of snow … mostly! I’m sure the North North Americans and Canadians must be laughing, but we must have had all of about five inches in places – that’s LOADS for us! Apart from de-icing the car, which is always a slightly painful process that I need hubby’s help with, the snow doesn’t seem to have had any kind of bad effect on my rheumatoid arthritis, which is great! Of couse if I let myself get chilled then I stiffen up, but that’s the cold rather than the snow.
I did try to take some pretty photos when it was looking gorgeous the other day, but as I didn’t venture any further than our small back garden I didn’t get anything too spectacular! Hubby and I talked about going for a walk right through the weekend, but it never got past talking. At one stage he said, ‘I’ll go for a walk if you really want to…’ and I said that I’d been just about to say the same thing to him … so we didn’t bother! I’m sure I missed some great photo opportunities but then again the snow was a great excuse to stay in and warm and snug and cosy and got lots of City & Guilds embroidery stuff done!
However, even though I suppose a White Christmas would be kind of nice, I’m now quite ready for a thaw, thank you! Winter Wonderland is all very well, but I’d prefer safe roads and safe pavements!
