Another post this is getting a habit!

It has been trying very hard to snow here today just a little flutter here and there, there is a big snow storn being blown over from Russia at the moment heading towards us and the weathermen say that there is going to be a good few cm's/inches of fall. In the next few hours if it does hit then we might as well close up the country as even a light snow shower stops everything in it's tracks, but we will have to wait and see as the weathermen always get it wrong.

I am in a minority of adults in what people of 'my age' think as I just love the stuff, I think it's great acting a kid again and building snowmen and throwing snowballs, all the while tring to avoid the yellow snow!

Went into central Manchester today as the Chinese, celebrated the new year by bringing out the dragon. We took georgina and little hayden down to see it and he was mesmerised by this giant dragon running around in front of the town hall to the beat of the drums and the loud firecrackers going off it was a good way to kill a couple of hours on a Sunday. As soon as I have got the pics and worked out how to post some pics on here then I will post a couple.

Hope everybody else had a great weekend.


  1. It started snowing here (just north of Derby) around midday: very light, but steady. Probably barely a centimetre so far though. Pretty damned cold too, for the UK at least (ie approximately 0°C).

    Thanks to not having to go out, or drive in it, I like it too. Very nice just to watch from the window. The kids in our street love it too of course – a nice cul-de-sac for them to play in.

  2. The job I would not like to have when the snow falls is a bus driver. You see the kids lining both sides of the roads to take out such an easy target hope to scare the passengers to death as well as the snowballs slams into the glass right at the side of their head!
