Frosty the snowman!

Well, we have had a constant flurry of snow here in Kinouchiville, so we decided to go and make our very own and first snowman together. Off we trooped to find some fresh untouched snow...we had to walk a little way as people had pinched the good snow or trampled all over it!!! Shocking I know! Well we eventually found a cute little off shoot overlooking the canal by the bridge so we set to find it was like powder!!! Try making a ball out of talcum powder and you get the idea!!! Were we perturbed....NAY!!! Were we going to beaten...NAY!!! So Jason mustered all of genius matter and figured if he walked like a penguin making a plough out of his feet we could gather the Jason penguin walked and I began building :o)

4 frozen feet and 2 ice knees later we had our very own snowman...

He may not be conventional...but we love him all the same :o)

New Year, New Blog!

It's that time of year when we tend to make resolutions so here are the fruits of one of ours. I thought I'd try and get into this blogging again so that we can try and keep in touch with you all better. I'm very new to this and I'm sure it's not going to be anywhere near as swanky as yours Petra...but I'll give it a go....who knows this time next year I may well be a blogging queen!!! Jason already has his own blog for his design profile, so he is all up there with hopefully I'll follow along soon :o) but with more prettiness of course :o) so happy new year!!!

To start off I've got to say how funny we find that as soon the UK gets a little bit of snow people are in chaos lol. I waited over an hour for my bus to work this morning until I gave up after hearing the bridge out of my town was blocked due to a jack-knifed lorry...unexpected annual leave day for me....however did I moan...oooooooh no...I PLAYED!!! I grabbed Jason...much to his enthusiasm (not)...and dragged him outside to the snow :o) I can't help it...I'm a big kid! The snowflakes were as big as cotton wool balls!!! So after playing about (and me jumping onto the ground to make a snow angel) we trotted back inside. LOVED IT!!!

Oh I should mention, there is only a it of decking outside of our apartment overlooking the canal...but that's all the area I have to play in so I took it :o) I do wonder what the lady watching us was thinking ;o)

Well, I hope you guys are having as much fun in the snow as we are...well... I am. I bet you guys in America have far more and far better snow but hey ho!

Huge hugs,
Cheryl and Jason x
