Robins and Snow Hunting


Today we read a truly lovely poem about Scandinavian robins. We learned about their migration and then Lady P made a lovely picture of two robins. It was a completely unplanned activity but was lovely!

In our part of the UK, we never see snow! It’s tragic actually! I miss snow! Yesterday we decided to hunt for snow. We visited a friend’s farm and they had plenty! Unfortunately, on the way I got stuck in a snow bank and by some miracle, a farmer happened to be in the same place at the same time, and dragged me out of the bank by attaching a rope to my tow bar! It was comical really! Lady P was super anxious and wanted to go home but I just thought it was just like me to go and get stuck in 3cm of snow! Canada will be ashamed!

We managed to finally arrive at our destination and played in the snow, we went sledding and saw horses who came up for a visit! It was wonderful!

Side note: I got an appointment with the School nurse about Penny. She is coming Tuesday to have a chat!


Winter Holiday


I’ve taken a break from blogging lately but I’m hoping to get back to it! We went to Canada for a visit and had a great winter holiday.  The kids enjoyed their first proper snow experience! Although Cheeky Girl did not enjoy the -28 temperatures! 

We went to a few places like Ripley’s Sea Life Centre…
We also went to the Science Centre…
We enjoyed a weekend in Niagara Falls with family and went to the Butterfly Conservatory…

We stayed with friends at a house in The north for a week! We had more snow then we’d ever seen in our lives!!!

We had an amazing time but we were happy to get back home and back into routine! And we appreciated not having to wear so much layers all the time!
