Walking in a winter wonderland. You know me, I speak so fondly about all the seasons, what’s not to love? The tulips in Spring, the long days and nights of Summer, all the colours of Autumn and lets not forget the bright Winter sunshine and crisp mornings. Although I don’t think I have ever loved December as much as I do this year. Waking on Sunday to a blanket of snow and again to even more on Monday was perfect timing. I felt like a child, waking early only to head straight to the window and peer out. It really was the most beautiful of scenes to wake up to, and despite creating havoc on the roads and the closure of local schools but oh my goodness it took me right back to my childhood.
I can’t remember the last time there was a local wide snow day for the schools. If only I could have had a duvet day. Instead I made my way into the office whilst the boy went to our dear friends for a snow day with his best buddy. There is something so heartwarming about seeing children of all ages out sledging, throwing snowballs and building snowmen together on a day where the schools have been closed.
In George’s words ‘a day of fun’
They all looked so happy. And so in a bid to have my own bit of fun, I went out for a little walk on my lunch break. We have a woodland area right behind our offices which I often frequent when I need some time away. Whether it’s sitting on the hill to eat my lunch or quite literally just walking until its time to turn back. I am so so glad that I braved the cold and wore the right footwear. The views were breathtaking and oh my goodness how pretty does the blue sky look as a backdrop?
