Strange But True - London Can Be Pretty! When It Snows, Of Course.

Hello all!!

We've had our first snow this winter. Yippee!!!

I adore snow. It makes me happy and I can't stop smiling. I was with a friend in a cafe when it started to snow last night and both of us got excited like little girls at the prospect of white London. Hour and a half later, it was still snowing. Here is how my terrace looked like. 

It is impossible not to touch fresh snow:

Here is my little Xmas tree. I wish it looked like that in December :-)

This is where I spend lots of my time in spring and summer. Not last night though:

Beautiful big tree right in front of my terrace getting new white clothes:

This country comes to a stand still when it snows. I don't understand it. We've had snow here for years now and you'd think we'd be prepared for two inches of white powder. 
Well, I think we should leave complaining to the Grinch and enjoy snowball fights, snowmen and the beautiful white wonderland.

Have a happy week.

Hello Red:
Although there is snow all around, there is no snow in Brighton. Rather disappointing as it was such fun last year when there were battalions of snowmen all along Brighton beach.

How lovely that you have an outside terrace which you can enjoy in the good weather with room to sit and eat too.Perfect!!

It feels as if you've written everything I was thinking about. :) Snow makes me feel like a kid and creates a balance (winter=snow). My puppy also adores the snow and is happy to play outside for hours.
Hope you had a wonderful weekend!

Remember last year when the whole of London stood still for almost a week and nothing worked?!

Snow is gorgeous though, I love it! (Until it becomes a muddy mess!)
