As I mentioned yesterday, it's been snowing...
On Saturday we woke up to snow!!!!!!! It was actually snowing!!!!! Light, gentle, slowly falling snow!
There was no way I was staying inside and missing this (Michael initially hid under the covers, but changed his mind).So, we got rugged up and went out and enjoyed the snow while it's still novel.
Muddlarks a cousin gave us (along with a good selection of clothes that has saved us from buying jumpers, thermals, long sleeve tops, and gloves - and yes, we brought them all with us from Australia), and they were great! Jimmy's legs stayed nice and dry, and presumably warm. We double gloved his little hands too, and his fingers were still warm when we came home.
The snow turned to rain, and the sun set.
Sunday morning we woke to even more snow! It had snowed overnight, but the clouds were starting to clear. So, we headed out for our first snowy trip to the shops before the snow turned to mush.
And we did well: somehow I managed to breastfeed Jimmy; and neither Michael nor I slipped on any ice!
