First Day of Spring

March 22, 2013


Can’t believe how much snow has fallen on Skelmanthorpe since 5.00 today. 6 or 8 inches deep in some parts.

I was ironing my metaphorical shorts!


Snow, Snow, Quick Quick, Snow

I was only commenting to my sister in law on Saturday that I thought the worst of the bad weather was over and Spring was on it’s way.

How wrong could I have been?

This is the view from my bedroom window this morning!


This snow has made an unwelcome return to Skelmanthorpe this morning, wet slush that seems to be settling very quickly.

Of course, the kids are happy about it, hoping to get out after home school to make a snowman. Only I know that the snow isn’t good enough for that, but can I tell them?

Both myself and the current Mrs. Laidlaw are in desperate need of some sun. A chance to sit in the garden, drink some good coffee and feel the warmth on our faces. We even dream of a beach and sand.

Come on God, how about it?
