By 10:30 p.m. this was the scene in my garden and as you can see the snow wasn't slowing down.
By morning everything had a wonderful blanket of snow and the whole thing felt very Canadian. Scarves, mitts and tuques (Canadian for winter hat) had to be pulled out of the cupboards to provide warmth before we could head out and make a snowman and clear the drive.
I bought this snow shovel back in October. When I brought it home DH was sceptical whether we would every have the need for a snow shovel as snow in the UK used to be pretty rare. Well, the way I saw it was that for the past 3 winters I have cleared the drive with a spade (don't laugh!! LOL) and I dreamed of the day I would find a proper snow shovel without having to import one from Canada. I was so pleased to see it used and lets face it to be proved right that the £7 I spent was a sound investment.
After all that work, we retreated back inside for some warm drinks and a spot of crafting. DD1 sat and knitted on another pair of socks..this time turning the heel the traditional way. I have no idea what that really means, but it sounds impressive! :o)
Until next time....
