We woke up this morning to our first snow of the year ... all one inch of it. To the girls' diasppointment we rarely get snow - we are sheltered behind the Chiltern hills, so often miss out even when surrounding areas have two or three inches. Schoolwork went on hold. They wrapped up warm and managed to scrape up enough snow to build a snowman. By lunchtime the snow was well on the way to melting, and by mid-afternoon it was almost completely gone, so it was as well they didn't miss that small window of opportunity. It looked so pretty while it lasted, though!
