Winter Wonderland

The snow is HERE!  And according to the BBC it is set to be here for at least a couple more days. Normally I hate the stuff… trudging to work, stomping through the snow and risking life and limb on the ice has never been my idea of fun. But right now, I’m finding it quite enchanting. There is so much of the god damn stuff you can only admit defeat, turn the heating up full and drink tea. Even Gavin was defeated in his attempt to get to work this morning, which is definitely a sign of how bad things are. Normally he & his little Aygo will fight their way through. Unfortunately that does mean he’s at home all day… just when I was planning to spend the day doing uni work. 

Not being able to see the ‘outside’ from where we are in our flats (as we face internally onto a courtyard), I was curious to see just how bad it was out there. So I did risk life and limb for some photos. Thankfully some kind soul had donated a park of Karrimor walking trainer type things which kept me upright and my toes toasty.

Almost snowed in!  Snow in front of our patio door.

Back at home I spotted a blue tit pecking at the bird feeder.  An everyday sight for many, but not for us city dwellers.  Saying that I have now seen three different types of birds at this feeder so hopefully more will come, bit by bit.
