Snow is YUCK

I was gloomy about the forecast for snow. Snow is coooold. And it turns into ice. And I walk everywhere.

At least we’re not living up a treacherous hill in Brighton anymore. One year Laurence went to India for three weeks and ice pretty much marooned me in the house. All I can think is there must’ve been a lot of toast.

“It’s a photo opportunity,” Laurebce encouraged, “You can take pictures of Talitha in the snow.” Well, this was a sort of comfort. She’d love the snow.

So it finally fell in Bristol. Talitha looked out at it and kept saying: “Wow!” When I told her it was snow, she said: “Wow! Tuh-know!”

Snow meant Daddy came back from the train station discovering that all trains were cancelled. It meant he could have pancakes for breakfast with us before driving in.

After he was gone, I got her suited up for snow fun. Then we ventured out in it and I set her down.

Crunch, crunch, crunch. She tried sloshing it with her feet then shouted: “Yuck!” She lifted her arms for me to pick her up so I did.

“Don’t you want to play?” I asked. “No!” she said, emphatically. I tried putting her down over and over but she would whimper each time.

In the end we did a walk through the garden in a ring sling and that was that. Snow was yuck.

Of course, the next day, Laurence managed to get her to do this:

But I laid the groundwork for this. Right?

    aw bless, Sicily liked sledging with the boys but she hates getting cold so I had to wrap her up massively.

      I think it must help having older siblings.

    Haha snow is a bit yuck, especially once it all starts melting and going muddy! I love it for a day or so but then I just want it to go away. Plus I am dreading it freezing over and going icy as I won’t be able to walk anywhere! Luckily we live opposite Sainsbury’s so we don’t have to venture out too far! Lovely photos x

    Curly Girl often does things with daddy that she won’t do with me. She does love the snow though and we had lots of fun this weekend having snowball fights and building a snowman. Her time will come πŸ˜‰

    Such beautiful pics and she sounds like my little boy-he thought it was yuck until he got on a sledge!

    Love the photos! Betsy was fascinated by the snow, but hated setting foot in it, so I would have to carry her around while she poked snow off branches and various poles. I’m really hoping we’ll be making snowmen together next year.
