We awoke to this scene at the front of the house
and this at the back
The cats Smudge and Squeak were very unimpressed with this nasty cold white stuff, so I gave them an extra bit of food for insulation.

George snapped a few pics while he was out with the dogs :

Cinnamon in the Snow
The courtyard and house from the back gate

Snowy landscape
I've been under house arrest all day in case I slip and fall and break something else, but Anne sneaked me out mid-afternoon.  We paid the horses a visit to see how they were coping.  They were wet, but warm and perfectly content

 especially when they got their lucerne a little early.
Fani's ponies were jealous...
...they will have to wait until later.

 At our house Fionn was the first to spot the snow
Whoa it's snow Roxy

Now Roxy had never seen snow before, so I grabbed a coat and took her for a walk up to the Falaises where she chased around like the puppy she is

It doesn't often snow here, but the snow ploughs and gritters have been in action all day and the roads are clear.  Temperatures are due to plummet to -20 C at the weekend, so hopefully the roads will dry out and not turn into sheets of frozen ice. We'll keep you posted!


  1. yikes - minus 20..................
    Roxy looking like an all grown up young lady

  2. Love all the photos, the cats have the right idea, I am hoping to not get any snow this year, but having said that the snow can be nice like this post.

  3. Thats really beautiful. Roxy looks enchanted!
