Let it Snow!

Woke up this morning to find snow in the mountains – yipee!

Today its sleeting and freezing cold, so I’m hoping  we might get some snow in the village over the next few days.  I’ve been desperate for snow this year because a month or so ago I became the proud owner of a stunning Davos toboggan/snow sledge.

Hand made in Germany these  must be the ultimate in sledging chic (much better than a bin bag/estate agent board anyway, not that I have used either of course)!  These beauties are built to last,  an item to cherish for years and enjoy with your children,  and hopefully grandchildren too.  Plus the metal runners underneath make it look  like it’s going to  go really really fast!

I loved all the snow last year and would like to see it repeated, it somehow added to the festive spirit.  I’ll never forget how, after being snowed in for over a week, OH and i put in a superhuman effort to dig out the car so that DW could keep his appointment to meet santa for the first time. I’ll also never forget the novelty of sledging down to the shop, and really hope we get to repeat  that this year on our super fast new sledge.

If it doesnt snow, i do have a plan b . Santa may well find himself leaving a sledge behind, piled high with pressies for my beautiful boys.

Any sign of snow near you yet, and do you love it or loathe it?xxxxx

  1. Just have to tell you how beautiful these sledges are. Babi Pur delivered one about a month ago, we have pulled the children round the house on it (if you put a towel under it slides on the wooden floor) and they love it. NOW I JUST WANT SNOW 🙂

  2. That’s a great idea! Guess we’ll be whipping out a towel come Christmas day if there isn’t any snow! 🙂

  3. I LOVE snow, but being on the coast we get three festive choices:

    1)No snow.
    2) Ice and nothing but.
    3) OH MY GOD THE CLOUDS ARE ACTUALLY FALLING FROM THE SKY!

    When it snows, by gum does it snow! I’m thinking of the unexpected January blizzard of 2010. At the time, I loathed it because I had a 1.25hr drive each way for work. This year I’m working locally, though, so bring on the inches, I say!

  4. If you can promise us snow i promise we’ll get one of those sledges. They look awesome but i can’t get one unless I know we’ll use it 🙁
