Snow Day








^^^Take one dog and a whole bunch of snow and what do you get?  A super happy dog.

We went a walk in Callander on Sunday with Tam's family, on what turned out to be a lovely day.  Cold, but gorgeously bright.  I was all up for this plan solely on the basis that I got to visit the best bakery ever, Mhor Bread.  Screw eating healthily, I can do that next week.  Or maybe next year.  Two cakes, one walnut loaf and a packet of shortbread later (um, purchased that is, I'm not that quick at eating it!), we set off for a path through the fields outside the town, where Parsnip had a great time catching snowballs and making friends with other dogs.  He was a bit surprised when he actually caught some snow and it turned out to be cold and crumbly, but it didn't put him off.

It continues to be frosty and icy and headache inducingly cold here in Glasgow.  Yes, I can hear you Canadians scoffing from here, but we're not used to such inconveniences!  I've been wearing my snow boots and chunky jumpers to work every day since our heating system takes as long as I do to get going in the morning.  I've mostly been housebound otherwise, although I did manage to drag myself to the supermarket on Tuesday and the gym Wednesday (first time this year, woohoo!).  Here's hoping the weekend turns mild and frost free...  Well, I can dream can't I?

  5. I realise it must be freezing buuuut, it looks so pretty! I really wish it was snow like that in London (even if it does cause a little chaos)... Hope it warms up for you :)
