February's goodbye letter. P.S. Snow.

Photo from this afternoon - from school, the kids and I walked straight to the footbridge on our way home to wait for the trains. For two days in a row, it snowed when I collected M from her after-school clubs (gardening club on Monday and judo on Tuesday - her week days are nearly full, she's a very busy seven-year-old). I've forgotten how invigorating it is to go for a walk whilst or after a fresh snowfall, well, till it becomes ice masquerading as snow. It is one of the most beautiful things in the world. It snowed almost the whole of Monday and today but because it just melts when it lands, we don't have that much. Not complaining as I remember it's never easy to move the pushchair (or a suitcase) on inches of snow. You could see that in this photo of the railway tracks, how it's just like icing on a cake. It is not fluffy over frozen lake kind of snow, not Alpine mountain kind of snow, but still snow, and it was enough to make the kids giggle.
