This was the scene which greeted us this morning:
It is the first real snow we’ve had this year and there was great excitement in our house. The kids were up at 7 am – unprecedented for DS1, who is 14 and finds it difficult to get up by 7.30… They had the radio on and were busy listening to see if their schools were shut for the day! Unfortunately for the two eldest, theirs was open so they duly interrupted their snowball fight to get on the bus when it arrived, bang on time.
So white and peaceful… until DS3 and his friend went into the garden and made a snow fortress! Their school was closed.
But… by 12 noon it was raining and there’s not much left of it … it never lasts long around here.
