Never one to be left out, I’d be a fool not to mention snow this week as part of our update. It’s incredibly rare that we get snow here given that we’re so southern and so near to the seat. This week is no exception! Whilst the rest of the world (okay, Instagram!) seems to have been blessed with piles of the stuff for their children to look adorable in, our garden has remained resolutely brown and muddy.
On Saturday, we did our best to overcome this and headed to a local outdoor area known as Holden Hill. There are a number of trails; walking and cycling, here with one of the most popular being the Gruffalo trail. So we set off to find him! In amongst the stick men figures and the wooden dens, we found something even more exciting… snow! Sure, it was minimal and very sad looking in comparison to some photos I’ve seen but nonetheless it entertained the boys for ages.
After such a high, our Gruffalo hunt ended with a grump. Annoyed at not being allowed to walk the entire way (it was getting dark!) or being allowed to live forever with the snow and muddy puddles, someone had a screaming fit for the entire second half of the trail. So much for a relaxing family walk! We eventually made it back to the car with a very grouchy Gruffalo hunter and two worn out parents. At least the dog had a good time!
