Snow in April?

The view out the window!

We're on holiday just now. We've come up to my in-laws holiday house in Aviemore (North of Scotland) After last week's unseasonably warm weather I didn't believe the weather forecast when it told me it would snow. How could it? It was glorious last week! I did pack the kids' snowboots just in case, and a couple of jumpers, but that's about as far as I went. My poor children were out buiding a snowman this morning wearing socks on their hands because their fool of a mother didn't pack gloves!

Their fool of a mother has not set foot outside today and is cosied up on the sofa playing with hexagons :)

2 more sleeps until puppy day!!!

  6. I didn't believe them either, the weather has been so glorious lately! At least their toes didn't get cold and you had a chance to play with hexies!

  8. Crazy weather. We had a day of downpouring Saturday that never let up followed by 72 degrees blue sky on Sunday. Playing with hexis sounds perfect.

  9. Oh how puppy exciting! I can't wait!
    I'm sure the kids didn't care a jot having socks on their hands. The snow is just too fab a playground to worry about such things!
    Enjoy your few days away! Jxo

  10. I couldn't think of a better way to spend a chilly day than making hexies. Smart mama!

  11. My dad's birthday was 25th April, and I can remember having snow on his birthday one year! We're lucky down in sunny Berkshire - well, by sunny, I mean not snowy! Good luck with the puppy, can't wait to hear about it!

  12. Stunningly beautiful view, and even more so when it's unexpected. I'd say mum was a pretty smart cookie to stay cozy inside.

  13. I would say the 'fool of a mother' was pretty damn smart holed up inside.
