What happened to my head?


How quickly things can change! I was too sad to post this yesterday, and here ends all mention of snow...some readers will, I know, be relieved!


The thaw came much more quickly than predicted, and there's barely any trace of snow now. Schools are getting back in most parts of the country, although some smaller roads are still quite dangerous.


Today we have gale force winds, some floods and water rationing.


Well, it was good, so good, while it lasted.

And the lesson I've learned is to enjoy stuff in the here and now, cos life has no guarantees. And I'm glad I did!

  1. Ahh, his head has disappeared! How funny, but painful and quite pitiful, all at the same time. Is there any more snow on the future forecast for you?

  2. Oh no, poor Mr.Snowman! It's quite sad to see his carrot nose on the grass.
    Sunny :)

  3. There is nothing sadder than a melted snowman. Thanks for all the joyful posts - I am so glad that you shared them with us. Your snow adventure must seem like a dream time now. This will enter Dublin's oral history, as in: "It happened in 2010 - the winter we had the big snow!"

  5. Warmth - the snowman diet!
    He's but a shadow of his former self....

    We should have rain later this week which will wash our snow away after 11 straight days of below freezing. However, I am looking forward to the next one. :)

  6. The carrot on the ground tells quite story all on it's own. I can send some snow your way, we have plenty of it. One thing we haven't had for months though is that beautiful green grass! I think you are on the right track about learning to enjoy life as it comes to you.

  7. I'm trying to adopt your attitude towards snow but it's difficult when the stuff won't go away. I missed a hair appointment because of it so I'm not happy. Thank goodness for blogging... grins

  9. I came back from Spain (having been left stranded there by Ryanair) just too late to capture even ONE image of the best snow in 40 years. I am so disgusted!
    You got some great images -especially love the ones of the robin.

  11. Better snow than gale force winds, that's true. It's supposed to start storming here tomorrow too. Yuck.

  13. Oh Mimi, the snow here has disappeared as quietly as it arrived and in the dead of night too. I was sad to see it go, although I was pleased to be able to wear actual shoes again and not wellies.
