Sure it snowed at the most inconvenient times.
It made going anywhere in the week leading up to Christmas Day next to impossible.
It made buying even a pint of milk a military operation.
It meant I had my heart in my mouth wondering whether I’d ever get to take my children on a trip to Lapland offered to us by the good people at Transun.
But it sure did snow and we had the best time.
We dug a trench out of our road with all our neighbours.
We rolled in the powdery white stuff.
We sledged until our fingers turned to ice.
And we came home for hot chocolate and DVDs in the warm.
Oh, and the kids managed to ‘use’ their dad as a makeshift sledge when we went out without one . . .
