Let it snow, let it snow, let it snow

snow plough

The snow plough might have been along the main road this morning but there was still no bus into work. After a short foray to judge the practicality of attempting the 8 miles into Oxford on foot I decided that it would be much better to take a day's leave to enjoy the snow, the cricket, my knitting, and a little bit of the Lord of the Rings on DVD.

The boyfriend and I made our usual trek into the park to check out the snow.

There were lots of similarly snowbound locals attempting some rather incompetent sledging down the hill. It's not great snow for sledging too powdery) which stopped me from feeling too envious about my sledge-less state.

After walking round the park and picking up some bits and pieces for lunch we headed home to enjoy the snow from inside. I had a lovely afternoon knitting and listening to the cricket which watching the snow on the branches outside.

Oh how lovely!! Isn't it nice when you take a day's leave unexpectedly? I did that last year when we had some snow and it was so much fun!!
The legwarmers look great by the way x

In a pinch, you can use a big bin liner for a sled. Open it up, get your legs inside and slide away. (That said, you *will* feel e-v-e-r-y single bump on the slide down the hill.)
