It’s snowing! We actually have snow here in London!
As you can no doubt tell I am very excited by this. And cold. Oh so very cold. But still very excited. It’s not often that I get to see snow, especially snow that settles on the ground and forms a white blanket.
In fact I can probably count the number of times I’ve seen proper snow like this on one hand which is kinda depressing because it is really pretty. And did I mention oh so cold? Because it is really cold. Although that might be more my fault for running around outside in it like a lunatic without a coat or jumper or scarf or gloves. Told you I was excited. Plus I wanted to take some photographs, I’ve put a couple of what I think are the best ones below.
My cat wasn’t though. She didn’t like it at all. She’s two and a half so today was quite literally the first time in her life that she has ever seen snow. I opened the back door to let into the garden and she just paused to look at the snow falling, probably trying to work out what it is. After a minute or so she decided to attempt to venture out into the cold but as soon as her paw touched on the snow on the ground she decided it wasn’t for her and turned around back into the house. We’ve gone through this routine several times over the course of the day, and every time it has gone the same way, me stood in the cold holding the door open for her waiting for her to make up her mind, her putting one paw in the snow and changing her mind and going back to bed.
Time for the photos! Let me know what you think of them (if you click on them you can see an enlarged version). The first set of three are of one bush while the second set of three are of another.
