We're having a very wintry Sunday here in Sheffield - we have snow!
It started snowing around tea time yesterday and continued til after midnight. It wasn't heavy but there's enough snow on the ground this morning to delight the girls and start me worrying. I don't like it when it
turns icy and we've got the school run tomorrow. My husband walked
to work today instead of driving but that's not really an option for taking
the girls to school. Hopefully all the snow would have thawed by then.
Setting aside my snow worries, I have to admit that this is a very good day for hot chocolate, board games, crochet and watching films snuggled under a blanket on the sofa. The girls spent nearly an hour playing outside earlier and it was great to see them having so much fun.
And it does look beautiful out there. It reminds me of a poem from
A First Book of Nature called 'Snow Song' :
Snow has covered up the dirt and muddle;
It's made the world look new and neat and clean.
You forget the other seasons and their colours;
For now, white seems more
Beautiful than green.
Just for today, though. Tomorrow I hope the usual browns and greens
outside will reappear and life will resume as normal. We're keeping
out fingers - and cosy toes - crossed!
Have a lovely, warm, cosy Sunday day, everyone!
