I'm not sure this is my son...

Snow is very pretty and all that but really who wants to go out in it? Well my son apparently... lots!

He's been out 5 times today for 15-20 minutes at a time before he gets too cold. Thankfully you can see the garden from the dining room window so I get to watch and nod and smile whilst still in the warm. (I did go out for about 3 minutes but retreated as it was too cold for me!)

It's great to see him taking such pleasure in something so simple. And I take joy from seeing it. My loathing of snow comes from too many times as a child having to walk up fields in blizzards to get home as we lived in a farmhouse in the countryside. Now I have a healthy respect for snow and avoid it as much as possible.

The boy thinks it's just a great big ice lolly!
