Winter Wonderland

One of the best things about living in Europe has just happened!  

It has started SNOWING!

Everything looks beautiful, covered in white, fluffy, cold snow! It’s like a fairytale (when you are looking at it from indoors).

I would like to say a big thankyou to those workers who shovel the snow off the pathway; you are doing a brilliant job! It helps so much.

About 4 days ago, the first snow arrived. It was minimal, but never the less I was very excited. Just enough to build a mini snowman and have a slightly epic snowball fight.

But then, after 48 hours of constant snow, it begins to build up. The cars are hidden in the ground by snow and the buildings are covered with it. In places that are just not logical, there is snow. Like for example; the side of a tree, the side of it! But all of this extra snow leads to; you got it, the possibility of a bigger snowman!

Now, building a snow man is not as easy as you would expect. Not like building a sandcastle at all (I was told as soon as I started trying). You begin by making a snowball, and then you start rolling it around in the snow, patting it down every now and again to strengthen it. It starts to grow bigger and bigger, before you know it the snowball is huge and has turned into the head of the snowman!

Playing in the snow is so much fun; you soon forget that it is -18 degrees. Yes, negative 18 degrees.

When there is snow, everything is beautiful and anything seems possible.
