A Walk in the Snowy Park


And so the snow continues here and J's school remains closed. This has the knock on effect that I cannot get into work although I went in with J yesterday to be sent home again as J cannot sit in the doctors surgery due to the current Swine Flu epidemic.
So today we went for a walk in the park and it was beautiful. I stopped my moaning about the weather and took in the beauty of it all instead - even the so called "sink estate" I live on is improved in appearance by the white glistening snow which has fallen  in the past few days.

J discovered that frozen puddles feel nice to skate on.......



  ..... and that snow is slippery when there is ice underneath
                                      



We went to the park where J was delighted to discover that he was the only child there and had the playground all to himself. So fun was had on the swings..................

.............. and on the slide too. Later we tried to build a snowman but found the snow too dry and powdery to build with.


After the walk we went home to a warm, purring bundle of feline contentedness and to hot chocolate and a warm house.

That sounds lovely! It's Swallows and Amazons in South Essex. Thoroughly approve of the hot chocolate and purring welcome!
