Hi everyone! The snow was still here this morning, and the school was shut for the day. Unfortunately Charlie was sick during the night last night, so he'd have been off school anyway - he's a bit under the weather and is feeling a bit iffy.
However, he wasn't best pleased when I suggested that staying indoors might be a good idea, so a long-sleeved vest, long-sleeved t-shirt, jumper, long-johns, fleecy trousers, snow suit, thick socks, snow boots, hand warmers, ski gloves, neck warmer and fleecy hat later we finally made it outside! It really was cold, but Chas stayed nice and toasty and really enjoyed playing in the snow.

He and Pete had a bash at making a snowman, but the snow was very fine and powdery, so it didn't stick together very well. We got the sledge out and pulled Chas around for a bit, much to his delight - I'll try to upload a bit of video later! He also really enjoyed trying to catch the snowflakes on his tongue!

It continued snowing heavily for most of the morning, but then the sun came out, and it's disappearing fast. Pete's going up to Halifax first thing tomorrow morning (4.30am again!) so hopefully the snow will be gone by then so the drive will be a bit safer.

Charlie's lying snuggled on the sofa now watching TV - he's really enjoyed the snow, but is still feeling pretty under the weather. The snow was a welcome diversion, but now he's enjoying sitting wrapped in a blanket!

Enjoy the pictures!
