OK so snow is a rarity in the UK. (Though to have so much of it twice within the last 12 months is a bit odd .. whatever happened to global warming?) Everything looks very pretty, and for a new amateur photographer like me it’s presented a fantastic opportunity to try out my new DSLR and a real challenge to get the camera set up to show the whiteness of the snow and the blue of the sky. It’s also been lots of fun for the kids, who’ve had three days off school and have enjoyed sledging and snowball fights. But we’re bored now.
Firstly, I work from home. Shouldn’t be a problem really, but having the children around makes it very difficult for me to concentrate on anything really. Secondly I was due to go to two networking breakfasts this week, both of which were cancelled – so I’m feeling a bit lost without my usual supportive network around me. It’s fun walking in the snow – at first – but after three days all that trudging around just feels too much like hard work. Roads have finally been gritted – thank goodness – so we can now travel further than our town – but all that slush makes a pretty ugly scene. It’s cold and great, and even the kids are bored now.
Worse, I was due to go into London with my man this weekend – a belated birthday treat, football at Fulham, a nice meal out, a plush hotel in Westminster and a general mooch around my home city on Sunday. of course, that’s all off now too.
So snow, I have a simple message for you. We’ve had enough now … please go away!
