Happy feet

You can all breath a sigh of relief, today is not going to be another depressing, thought provoking or down right morbid post! I know I have been there for a few weeks but today we had a snow day.

Now that word for most Britain's is something to strike fear into their hearts, I mean seriously as a country we don't deal with the white powdery stuff very well at all!! However in our house the other half kind of .... how to describe the level of his excitement .....

Yep, that about does it.

Me, I was just glad to get an extra hour under the duvet before I had to get up and start to contemplate clearing the drive. School might be closed but jobs still need to be done!

Honestly, leave me in there and you have one happy Joe....Sleepy Joe (it's all in the name). Or even let me get back in at some point, like when I have been shoveling snow and I am seriously cold. Let me slide between the sheet and duvet, let me curl up, let me warm up. I don't necessarily need to go to sleep, a cosy story time is just fine too.

Anyway that was our day yesterday, I did also want to post a picture of the worlds best snowman....however it seems I am not raising snow sculptors  I am raising great big wusses! After about half an hour came the cry, "I'm cold, I'm going inside!" So now we have a snow mound on our lawn and lots of footprints (Grrrr does anyone else prefer untouched snow? Sooooo pretty!). I was tempted to just lob the hat and scarf on top and say it was a snowman mid-death, but then I would have to wash said hat and scarf when they came back in. Nah heading for the duvet was a much better plan, who am I kidding the girls take after their Mum!!

Here instead is a link to some snowman comedy that I discovered today. For those of you that are not sensitive, Google 'funny pictures of snowmen' and marvel at others imagination for snow creations!!!


  1. I'm so jealous! I absolutely LOVE snow. I hope you had a wonderful snow day! :-)

  2. I love that the other half gets so excited about snow. I wish you all much more, that his happy feet will dance that much more.

    I'm with you, though. I'd much rather the duvet than the blankets of white. At the same time, all that snow definitely makes me appreciate the duvet that much more.

    1. How ironic is it that I come to reply to this with another 6" of snow having just fallen and having just witnessed another little jig :-)
