Just another snow post

After lots of envy from myself aimed towards others on the Twitter and blogosphere posted their photos of icy weather, Southampton has finally had its own dusting of snow.  To paraphrase, armageddon has finally arrived here; photos of crashed vehicles grace the news, people have been sent home from work (those that managed to get in at all), bus and train services have been terminated and Southampton Airport has been closed.

Personally I love snow and was so excited to see the winter wonderland outside when I drew back the curtains this morning.  Tom and I dedicated some time before we left for work to play in the snow, take some photos and generally enjoy the change of scenery.

As of course is the way when you think you have a degree of photographic talent, Tom then took my camera off to his training course in Highcliffe and took better photos than I had that morning!

Despite Tom's suggestions that we trek out to the German Market in town I am a great believer in the fact that in weather like this you have to hibernate and eat lots of comfort food.  With this in mind we are making a huge cheesy Cottage Pie for dinner with profiteroles and mince pies and cream for dessert.  I am currently hugging a mug of mulled wine and the Dexter DVD is all lined up and ready to go!


On another note I currently have 49 followers to my blog, which really is exciting for me.  I love that people are coming by and visiting and (hopefully) enjoying reading my blog as much as I love reading theirs.  I am hugely inspired by all of my favourite bloggers and love the fact that (sentence coming up as cheesy as my cottage pie) I have made not only a long list of blogs I love to read and people whose lives, writing and opinions I am generally interested in but also some friends! Hooray!


Okay, cheesy bit over - hope the weather isn't too awful where you are and you are enjoying cosy nights in with hot drinks and comfort food like me.

  2. I'm so jealous! Everywhere else has snow. I live in the city centre so it's just slush for me. I'm dying to make snowmen and such.

  5. I'm sad we haven't Gotten much snow here in Wisconsin. We've only shoveled a layer of sludge once here so far. (Stated in an old-timers voice) Back in my day we'd of already used up all our snow days and would be expecting to make up 3-5 at the end of the year. lol
