Well I Was Begining To Feel Left Out!

This is what we woke up to yesterday, much to the dissapointment of the boys, the last few years is has snowed in the UK, Cardiff always seemed to get past by! It looks like I've got the sieve and caster sugar out!!

Today we woke up to this, no it is by no means as much as the rest of the country but it certainly made the walk to school a lot more fun!! Lots of snow ball fights (just as well I took extra uniform for them to change into) and me falling over as usual, the boys quite happily remind me the last time it snowed I fell then...thankyou!! Our school did open much to the dissapointment of the boys, I dont think there will be much left by the time I pick them up as the sun is out and I can see drips on the roofs and chairs in the garden!
I have been tagged by Bluberry Heart, to choose the 4th file in my picture section then choose the 4th picture, here it is, it s not very exciting is it? It was one of Steve's christmas pressies last year. I would like to say I bought it in New York as that would of meant I'd been again, but no, it was from the lovely shop Redwood Bay in Bath!
I have to tag 4 other people, so I will choose,
Amanda - Dream of Living
Clairey - Nothing Will Go Wrong
Sarah - Miss Sew n Sew
Alison - Vintage Amethyst

Have lots of fun in the snow...........Claire xx

Thank you for stopping by my blog.
It was such a coincidence as I had also clicked through from Ludabelle into your blog and it looks great so I'd bookmarked it to read tonight.

Lovely snowy photographs :)

The children have been given a trampoline for Christmas from a very dear friend, I am yet to see it yet but i know it is 10 foot and has a saftey net, I thought it may swamp our garden, and obviously don't know how big yours is though i think your trampoline looks very similar and it looks lovely. Can't wait to D and O jumping on it in the summer :)

I am going to have a lovely green and Blacks hot chocolate, your beautiful mug and plate present, ohooo could get a few choccy biscuits on there too, has inspired me :)

Thank you for your encouraging comments

We have had hardly any snow either! If its gonna snow you want proper 'batten down the hatches and snuggle up inside snow' don't you? - Natalie x
