Since last week we have been treated to quite a bit of snow, the kids have all loved having snow days off school. Big T loved making snowmen heads that he then would not allow us to touch or even help him make a snowman with them. R was not quite so keen on the white stuff falling from the sky to begin with but she then discovered the fun that comes with snow and spent the whole week yelling "coat" at us. The girls spent most of their time sledging and little T would play for about an hour before he would say he was cold and would want to go in. In that short time though he loved helping to make a snowman and thoroughly enjoyed throwing snowballs at his Dad and Nanna.
I, in the midst of flying snowballs & the pile of snowmen head got on with making an igloo. The snow on the 1st few days didn't quite compact right(how can snow be the wrong snow) So I waited 2 days to finish it off. The kids helped me a little but grew bored after it was not finished within 1 hour. My igloo was a good one, however last night came more snow, lots more snow, then came the rain. This morning sadly I woke to a caved in igloo, it just buckled in the heat, yes I said heat. In my garden sits a pile of broken snow blocks where once stood a fine igloo.
The Welsh landscape is beautiful on any day but when it snows it is truly beautiful, the hills were all glistening, the trees all had a topping of snow, and icicles reaching great lengths hung from the edge of the buildings.
The animals have all shied away from the snow, the cat has crossed his legs, the ferrets decided to drag their blankets outside with them when they ventured out and the chickens, well they stayed cooped up and were complete chickens.
I think the snow has given all it has got to give for us now so we can get back to having dry feet and no where near as much fun.
Until the next snow day I have captured some snow memories for us, minus M who wimped out and went indoors.
