Flashback Friday – Spring

It is hard to believe that with the weather that we have been having lately that this time three years ago it was snowing.
I remeber thinking what a great sight it was to wake up in the morning and to find the garden blanketed in snow.  We were all very excited as neither my husband nor I had ever experience decent snow fall before and even better we now had a decent garden to play in it. 


Son No 1 who was just short of turning 2 was so excited about playing in it.  He was so fascinated by the snow drops trying to catch them all, without glove on of course!!


It was my first ever attempt at building a snowman, luckily for me the guys at work had given me a heads up on how to build one.  Who would have ever guessed that you needed to roll the snowball?  My husband thought I was mad when I was trying to explain it to him.
3 years on how do we feel about the snow?  Well let’s just say after being stranded at train stations, taking 5 hours to travel 3 miles in the car and being made house bound as we can’t get the car out of the garage.  Not a lot really, in the words of Son No 1 after the heavy snow in December. “What snow again, how boring!”
For other Flashback Friday photos and stories head over to Cafe Bebe now.

British weather is crazy. April is my birthday month and I've celebrated it in heatwaves and in snow! Great post. xxx

Love the pics - particularly the amazing snowman. Like Inside the Wendy House I'm an april baby (beginning) and our birthday weather is unpredictable, but am I more likely to have snow on my birthday than at Christmas.

I can kind off relate to that, have spend 30 years having a winter birthday (august) and the last ten having a summer birthday. Feels really weird x
