We love snow! We get it rarely, that it is great. I know alot of people moan about it, how it grinds the country to a halt, its just that this sort of weather for the UK is not the norm! I know we had it last year, but thats 2 years out of how many?????
People moan because they are so used to using cars to get around, what about those two things sticking out of the bottom of our torso, legs! Amazing they are, they actually move you around!
Well I have been using mine to take my little snow plough for a walk.
He has thoroughly enjoyed the snow, until today when by the time he got back he did not want to walk and I'm not surprised he had snowballs attached to his feet and seemed to have like ice burns on his belly!
He wears a coat, to help keep him warm, but what I forgot is that his belly has very little hair coverage, and having such short legs would explain everytime he stops he was shivering!
You can see the ice, building up in his beard.
and our Postman 'Pete' made it through with a smile!
As to Christmas, well I am totally disorganised this year, most unlike me. The tree is up, with thanks to K, the cake is made, thanks to my mum!! I have put marzipan on it! The presents are bought, still to be wrapped.
I ordered the meat at the beginning of December so we will have turkey, whether there will be anyone here to eat it is another matter. My mum and her partner are due to be collected as is our eldest daughter. The priority is to get Kathryn, otherwise she will be all alone!
one animal who always finds a warm spot, Tango, and yes T was asleep!!
