An Unexpected Gift

Another Wednesday but this one was different, I awoke to what looked like a thin layer of snow. However when letting Roma out in the garden I realized it was a lot thicker. Roma was a delight to watch skipping and sniffing in my footprints as the snow continued to fall. She was totally puzzled by her first experience of snow. I couldn’t believe I was laughing at 6.30 in the morning.
The day just got better and better, after many phone calls and messages sorting work issues, I found out that our Interns (students) didn’t have to go in as the College was closed, so no work for me. Yes a snow day, an unexpected gift.
After doing a few jobs it was great to take Roma to the park, take some photographs and then warm up with a squirty cream topped hot chocolate.
Later I chilled reading The Hacienda How Not To Run a Club by Peter Hook which is so funny.
I finished this wonderful day sharing a bottle of red wine with my husband while watching How Art Began with Anthony Gormley.…..A perfect day

Roma by the Sea

Beaches are great places to visit during the Winter months…. less people, and good for the soul. So off we went to Formby beach, (owned by the National Trust and home to lots of red squirrels), with Roma who had never been on a beach, or in the sea.
Roma loves water and will go in every pond or puddle she passes, so this was going to be a fun day.

Yes, she loved it and so did we; crashing waves, a beautiful sky, an abundance of shells washed ashore and a soggy puppy.
