I must admit I got a little bit excited about the ‘Beast from the East’ - we haven’t had any snow to speak of in Brighton for about 7 years. Things started well, with a decent amount of snow on Monday night, and it carried on with further showers on Tuesday. It’s all a bit anti-climactic now though - a base layer of snow that’s not good for snowman construction or sledging, and not much more likely over the next couple of days by the looks of things.
Still, we got the chance to introduce my daughter to snow for the first time on Tuesday morning. She enjoyed it for about 20 minutes, threw a snowball, built a tiny snowman, quickly got bored and hasn’t been outside since…
This was yesterday, nice and sunny. Now it is grey, windy and still snowing. First “proper” snow for my daughter, too. She announced that she wanted to make a snow angel (wherever that came from), but quickly realised that snow is cold and wet. We still had some fun though walking to nursery and treading on virgin snow.
Slightly off topic, but every time I look at a photo of a selection of TWS wines, I feel like I’m back in the schoolground looking through a batch of Panini football stickers: ‘Got, got, need, got, need…’
Chateau Lacarelle Beaujolais will be here tomorrow (weather permitting) - that wine is a lot of fun
