snow day

 yeah, I know, everyone is blogging about the snow right now - but it's such a rarity in the UK (well, in the London suburbs anyway) that I can't resist jumping on the bandwagon! mostly I've been hiding indoors whilst the snow is on the ground. being a clumsy person at the best of times, walking around on ice is just asking for trouble. but today I went out on a walk round the park with my family and the pupster.

Jasper LOVES the snow! he acts like a puppy, running around, jumping in it, trying to catch snowballs. it's the cutest sight, especially as he has been rather poorly this past week, so it's so good to see him running around.

don't be fooled by those puppy dog eyes - he's after the doggy treats I had in my pocket to bribe him with (whenever I point a camera at him he physically turns around so I can't get a picture. the only way to get a good photo is to hold doggy treats by the lens!)

this church and graveyard are cute at the best of times, but in the snow they look like something off the front of an old-fashioned Christmas card!

I was getting really jealous seeing photos on blogs/instagram of people finding really massive icicles - so I was extremely pleased when we found these hanging off a garage roof!

and lastly, possibly the most terrifying snowman you ever did see - more of a 'snow hulk' with that face and those abs!

what have you all been up to in the snow? hope you're all keeping toasty warm and safe? this week looks set to be super busy, so I'm going to rest up this evening in preparation, watching The Walking Dead on DVD with a cup of tea and biscuits!
