A snowy update!

snowy front of house 21st Dec 09

Hello and welcome to a snowy South Wales :)  This was the view from my front door yesterday morning.  I really love the snow but only when I don’t have to go to work!!  It caused me no end of problems getting to work both yesterday and today.  I had to leave my car in the street and walk to the main road to get a taxi yesterday and a bus today (I don’t think I’ve been on a bus for about 10 years and it’s not an experience I wish to repeat!!)  I had so much planned to do this week but I don’t think I’m going to be able to do any of it – no-one is getting cards locally, although I did manage to post my cards further afield.  The kids thought it was awesome that they missed the last two days of school and went out throwing snowballs yesterday but stayed tucked up in the warm today. 

I hope we have a bit of a thaw soon as I’m supposed to be going to my sister’s for Christmas lunch and although she doesn’t live that far away it will be a major walk especially carrying all their presents!! 

I hope everyone is safe and sound and enjoying the wintry weather, if you have any.  I will hopefully be back before Christmas but I had better get some wrapping done first lol!  Thanks for stopping by today.

Hi Denise,
I know it can be a pain but it looks gorgeous when it's not disturbed. We have 5 inches in the back garden and the forecast for overnight here is -17degreesC so I don't think it's is going to thaw.
I'm definately dreaming of a white Christmas.

Looks beautiful (if you are on the inside), but I bet it was havoc, especially going down that hill!!! We are still awaiting our snow here in Worcestershire!!

A beautiful photo. So it looked like last week, even with me. Now everything is already thawed, and on the streets just dirty slush to be seen.
Hugs and merry christmas.
