Is that...? No it can't be....yes it is!!!

Living on the south coast means we're very lucky to have a warmer climate but it also means we hardly ever get snow. Jake is 4 1/2 and he has never seen snow, until today and he loved it! And Mum is pretty much a big kid too at the thought of getting it... something to do with a deprived childhood?? lol Anyway, school was closed and although we hadn't had very much, probably about an inch or so, it was enough to cover the ground so Jake could make a snow angel and have a snowball fight. We were going to go sledging on a makeshift sled but by the time we got to the park it was starting to melt and there really wasn't enough on the ground for it to work. We had a snowball fight instead, and kept losing the dog...... he blends really well with the snow..lol You can see him in this photo running frantically around the garden in excitement - bless.
It's snowed again this evening and the garden looks beautiful - shame it will be slush in the morning.

Jobe you should have brought Jake up to the village - oh my goodness did we get some snow. Looks like you all had a wonderful time - don't the dogs just love snow.

Nice you got snow in the end, you can use your snowy scrapbook papers now.
We still have snow yet after 9 days now.
