snow day

In the bleak midwinter, frost wind made moan, earth stood hard as iron, water like a stone; snow had fallen, snow on snow, snow on snow, in the bleak midwinter, long ago.
-- Christina Rossetti

The view from our bedroom window this morning

Our back garden

The fields behind our house (and this, dear reader, this view is why we moved out of London)

I have a day off work today. I was meant to be going somewhere on a train, but clearly that is now out. But it does mean a day to play in the snow (not that I could get to work anyway, I don't think you can get out of the cul-de-sac!)

Have fun and keep warm everyone!

It is so beautiful! I'm hoping we get it to settle here in London!! I did so love it when we had the snow day in February.

how "Currier & Ives" is your scene! All you need is a sleigh & reindeer! A perfect time to be cozy with a cup of tea, your cats and some knitting! Enjoy the season!
