Welcome Back February 2013

Hello and welcome back – I’ve been absent from my blog for a considerable time, so I hope to be more diligent this year and keep to regular updates!
I thought I would start with the same theme I started out with last year – snowmen, as during the cold snap, in January, we all managed to get into the garden and build a snowman.
My younger granddaughter named our snowman Sparkly, and he does look rather sparkly, as the sun was shining on him and the snow was glistening, making him almost come alive.
This year my husband helped to build him and the snow was much crisper than last year’s snow, so he was much quicker and easier to build. When we built Shelburn (last year’s snowman) I was a novice at building snowmen – I usually left it up to the men in the family to do this – and last year’s snow was finer and harder to mould into shape. I remember that Peter Hoag’s novel, Miss Smilla’s Feeling for Snow, explained that there are many more words for describing snow in places like Denmark, and now I have an insight into what this means. You are never too old to learn to something new
My elder granddaughter decided that she would like to build a snow dog and she knew just how she wanted to make it. We moulded the snow into the dog shape and then we got some of her “Pa’s old socks and made them into ears – and so Buddy was born – named of course by my elder granddaughter.
We all enjoyed ourselves so much and had a good laugh, it is amazing what fun building snowmen can be and it certainly works up a good healthy appetite!
