Default It's Snowing and I LOVE it!!!!!!!

Wow! Woke up this morning, glanced out of the window and what a beautiful sight! Snow all over the hills and the fields! I love it! Kids had fun (until we told them the school was still open) and I went for a quiet walk in the countryside followed by a warm drink in the local, sitting by the log fire......pure bliss! After that i spoiled it all by going for a job interview and getting it (damn and blast)! Well hope everyones ok on here XXXX

Very envious as the NE has not had any and this is one of the things I wanted to see on our return.

I take it you have moved away from Queensland?

Good luck with your job.

Best wishes

Although Hubby laid in bed last night and said "Honey, its going to be 4 degree's in London tomorrow.....4 degrees has never looked so good" (as compared to working on cars in 37 degree heat)

Bless 'im......

Yes living in Suffolk at the mo until we've decided where we want to live and commit! When we left it was in the high 30's, the humidity was high and when we landed at Heathrow I could've kissed the chilly ground (well i would have done, but it would have meant me dodging the broken glass, chewing gum and dog crap)! Ahhh just kidding, it was actually a pleasant and sunny day! We've been back 8 weeks now and we're still loving it here - we love the lushness, cold air on our faces when we go for walks, the heritage of our village and surrounding towns, just how pretty it all is! We're very lucky where we live which makes the decision to return even more difficult.

I was hoping not to work, but a few bills reminded me that I have to! Start on Thursday (deep gloom descending over me as I type).

My Hubby would KILL for some rain. He got horribly sunburnt at the Melb Meet on Saturday on his leg and he now says we should have come to Oz in Winter....I just tell him off for whinging (jokingly of course )

No worries, I was just thinking "WHAT??"

No snow here in Kent yet, looks like we might have some today though which is not good as we are a bit in the sticks and tend to have power cuts, plus no gas so wont be able to eat and will just have the heat from the fire!!!! :scared:

Snow in Kent always seems to make it onto the national news programmes, whereas snow anywhere else (in the UK) doesn't. Anybody else noticed that?

Probably because Kent seems to have become a suburb of London and the whole of the UK seems to revolve around whatever happens to affect Londoners!

Well its still snowing!!! Roads and cars frozen over night. I could kiss the person that invented 'quick clear' windscreens! Flick a switch and not only is your windscreen clear but the car is lovely and warm! Just collected kids from school and another parent has just got back from Brisbane (hols), she said she had a wonderful time, however coming back to snow was a million times better! Bet we don't feel like this next week!!!! The novalty will soon wear thin!
