This may be the Tubblet's first snow person. The photo was taken in 2008. I found it when I was tidying up some files.
The Tubblet, like most children, loves snow. She loves moulding it into other things. She loves the way it covers everything in a fluffy looking white blanket. Making it look wonderful, magical and special ... She likes the way normal life stops and, best of all, school may be closed. Allowing you to go off and have snow related adventures. She has been most disappointed about the lack of snow this year.
I used to love snow. Now I'm less keen. I still have to get to and from work in it. On public transport so I get to be cold too. It's slippery and I worry about landing flat on my ar*e or breaking something. I worry a bit less now my Canadian friend Lesley gave me some ice-walkers.
When I was tidying up the photos, I found this one as well. It was taken at the same time, at my bus stop. I turned up one night to wait for the bus home and there it was. A lovely reminder not to focus on downsides, but to try and make the best of it all.
Do you love snow?
