It's Snowtime! ♥

Finally got snow up here in the Lake District! It's been snowing on and off since lunchtime, at first in sleet and then big fat flakes. It's settled a bit but if it's anything like last year probably won't stay put! I'd take proper pictures but it was dark by the time it started to settle. 
Some people hate snow as it's cold and dangerous on pavements but I think it makes a nice change to the gloomy January weather. As long as it doesn't stick around for months like a grubby Christmas decoration and goes when we want it to xD It would be nice if it could stay all magical and fresh while it's around :)


I quite like it when there's a thick blanket of snow everywhere, especially when you live surrounded by fields. It's so quiet and peaceful and feels like you could just lose yourself out there with the snowflakes whirling round.... little bit of poetry for you there! :D
Something that came to mind writing that is a piece from the soundtrack of film 'Little Women', ironically called 'Spring'. It just reminds me of the shortness and preciousness of winter as we relive it each year ^^ 
I imagine getting lost out in the snowy wildnerness, white fields rolling away towards the horizon and everything has that beautiful sense of quiet and still. Snowflakes start to whirl around, the light is fading and your breath billows in front of you. Like being in an icy world, cut off from spring and summer, and feeling totally at peace with everything. 
 What do you think of the white stuff? Any snow where you are? :)
