The last few days here in the UK have brought us the much anticipated snow I have been yearning for since 2013. We didn't see a lot of snow at all last year and since I have been living in this area for nearly 16 years now, I was quite disappointed. Every year, without fail we get copious amounts of snow, but not last year.
Well, it came finally, and much to everyone's delight , we had a couple of snow days off school.
This was us driving to school on Thursday.....
And then driving home again as a snow day had been called. I loved the way the trees were totally covered. This was one of two roads I was particularly worried about going home on as they are uphill and very slippy.
Once home, the kids wanted to play out so off they trotted.
Neighbours came out to play as well and they built a very tall snowman!
More snow followed...
And it was the first time I had seen one of these on our estate. A snow plough! I managed to snap it before it went whizzing off down the road.
This left me with much needed time to make some progress on my Lizzie*Kate ABC of Christmas. I had put this down to be a February finish challenge but to be honest I am almost nearly done with it so might set a new challenge if I can finish it in the next few days.
I have really enjoyed stitching up the various motifs. I especially love that reindeer. He just needs his red nose on him now.
I have also been crocheting a few squares for charity. The pattern has been given by Theemuts on Ravelry to be used in SIBOL's 1000th charity blanket and she also makes blankets for her own charity too. You can find details here - LINK. Which colour square do you like best?
That's me for this week folks. Hope you're all doing well and surviving the cold.
