Let It Snow, Let It Snow, Let It Snow!

Bore da!

We awoke to the perfect version of A Child's Christmas In Wales, weather wise anyhow!

The forecast was snow from 4am today, we were awake at 5am and it was already coming down heavily. It is still snowing some now. Jon and the boys have gone to clear our neighbour's path and driveway then are going sledging - I am NOT!

Here are some of the views around the house; here from the top kitchen,

across to the chicken enclosure and....

the cars!!

I am of the mind to load the Rayburn up with baking potatoes and make a big pot of veg soup. 

We will have to see if the boys can get to school and Jon to work in the morning. I have just seen the first two vehicles, a land rover and a tractor. It said on the Internet that it was taking two hours to get from Lampeter to Carmarthen. We are going nowhere, hunkering down and just enjoying the time together.

I have just seen the Aberystwyth Neighbouring Policing Team go past so I guess people are being looked out for.

Hope all is well with everybody, Dawn I see you have had some winter weather at yours.

All take care please.

Bye for now.



  1. We have had some in Essex too but it's nearly all gone now. The roads are clear and rain is due so the rest will disappear. I don't like the stuff but the grandchildren have had a great time.

    1. Hi Tania. Our roads are a little clearer today but the boys are not at school. It is really quite cold but clear, no more snow is being forecast at the moment but the ice may be a problem to some. Jon is not in work so we are getting the necessary jobs done then hunkering down - big pot of veg soup already on the go and there will be a quick soda bread loaf to go with it and the next lot of mince pies to make later, too. Glad the grandchildren enjoyed it, mine are just heading out to make more snowmen.

  2. Yes we had some of the white stuff, defiantly jacket potatoes and soup weather, if you didnt have a 4x4 you were not getting anywhere

    1. Rain overnight has changed the landscape a lot and the boys have just left for school so can get the presents wrapped now!

  3. Jacket spuds and veg soup, who could wish for more! Perfect! X
