I know that compared to everyone else in the UK we've only had a tiny dumping of snow, but it's still been exciting to see the landscape changing and looking so pretty, although for a short while, and from the inside of a warm house.
Grumps has had a wonderful time sticking his nose into the snow, however he did get a fright when he came in and still had snow all over his back. Such a panic-pants.
My daughter, thinking she was the only one of her friends to be missing the first three days of school, wasn't thrilled to discover that the schools had been closed due to snow. "I could have stayed at home then," she said. Then when I told her we'd had approximately 2 inches - I measured by sticking my finger into the snow on the driveway - she laughed and found it hilarious that everything had ground to a halt whereas in Austria it's so different.
Anyway, today it's still mainly white - up where I live in the wilds of St Ouen - but the roads are fine and I'm off to meet friends for lunch to bid farewell to a fabulous colleague, Rachel, who is leaving our office after years of being great fun. It's also her 40th birthday tomorrow, so we're going to celebrate with bubbles and lots of scrumptious food. Work will not be the same without her though. Sigh.
