It doesn't ever really feel like winter to me until we've had some snow. Living in the south of the UK, we don't really ever see that much snow. We often hear on the news about snow further up north and see lots of pictures of it but we don't often get it. BUT on Saturday evening we got some snow! It wasn't very much, and sadly it seems to have pretty much gone now but I liked it whilst it lasted. It must be the inner child in me that likes it so much, that and the fact that I remember it snowing on and around my birthday when I was little, so snow time means it must nearly be birthday time.
For every Ying there is a Yang. Yesterday we had a 13 hour power cut (was it the snow? surely not). From 2.30pm we had no heating, no hot water, no lights, and later in the day no cooking of the pork fillets we had bought for our tea! It came back on at 3.30 this morning, along with the washing machine which had been mid wash when the power went off, so we were treated to the sound of the washer spinning away at top speed at 4am this morning. We're feeling quite tired around these parts today!
