Sightings From: Our First Day Of Snow! (November)

December 1, 2017

Just like that, it is December already. I remember this time last year, I said the exact same thing I say every year… “It seems like Christmas was only yesterday”. The thing is though, it does. It’s so scary. Oscar’s first birthday, Easter, Summer and Halloween have flown by, and I have almost nothing to show for it.

Unlike Caitylis, the town I live in is absolutely dire and the best picture I could probably get would be the surrounding area of one of the many Gregg’s we have. Yesterday, though, we had the first proper snow we have had in years which means I can finally join in with this linky! It went from being completely dry to being about 10 inches thick within half an hour. We walked into work in the rain and left in absolute sludge. It was like entering the North East version of Narnia, which is basically the same but a bit shitter.

We also had to top the car up on dinner break, and got stuck on a huge bank behind a broken down lorry, and to make matters worse, I was absolutely desperate for a wee the whole time. It took us nearly an hour and a half to get back to work, and we actually watched someone build a full snowman from scratch whilst we were waiting.

Thankfully, being in a stationary car meant I could get most of the shots above without actually being cold. Always a positive. 

This month has seen us through bonfire night and our gender scan (eek!) and also finding out that I am able to try for a natural delivery when I give birth again.We have also finally decided on our baby name, and I actually managed to buy all of Oscar’s Christmas presents instead of leaving it last minute, which is definitely a bonus.

I am confident in saying that November has definitely been the best month for us this year, but I have a sneaky feeling that December will top them all.

    Love your photographs Fern! I’m completely jealous of the thickening of snow you’ve had! We only had a tiny dribble – not even photo worthy! Thanks so much for joining in with my #SightsFromLinky!
    Much love, Caitylis x x
