It’s white here!

Well, not as much as we had in April 2008 when we had three feet of the stuff.

This was Maggie’s first encounter with it, and she was not impressed.
We’d woken up on Easter Sunday, pulled back the curtain, and everywhere was as fresh and clean as virgin bed sheets. Everyone’s garden looked the same, white and flat.
I was so excited, I rang my Mum who was more than a little sleepy eyed, and they had nothing down south! She thought I was joking, but when I received her letter later in the week she said she’d seen it on the weather reports and was quite anxious about us!
Hubby and I went out and made a snowman, sitting him on top of our car. I took a photo and used it for my first batch of handmade Christmas Cards. It was what I’d call ‘my over zealous period’ where I stuck on everything conceivable, so my snowman was a little grotesque with his blue tinsel dreadlocks which apparently had become detached when Mum opened the envelope. Mum said she’d had a good laugh at that.

Whilst it’s nowhere near as deep, we do have white roads and slippery pavements.
At 4 am, the heating kicked in, so temperatures had fallen considerably.
The confusing thing is, the sun’s out, and I’m practically getting a tan as I sit here in my corner by the window.
The irony here is if you look close enough, there’s snow in this picture which was taken last November!

Ho hum.
Onward with the day.


About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! In November 2020, we lost our beloved Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney. We now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of Kizzy, my GSD when Hubby and I first met so had hers done too. On February 24th 2022 we were blessed to find Maya, a 13 week old GSD pup who has made her own place in our hearts. You can follow our training methods, photos and her growth in my blog posts. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.
