Work of a snowy garden.
January 8, 2015

The gleaming garden glittered as snow laid itself on the countryside like white blankets.

SPARKLY TREE
It’s a tree. We did it in winter when there was snow on the ground, because we couldn’t go out into the playground. We hoped to, but it was too snowy and the teacher wouldn’t let us. So, we stayed inside and did a picture of a tree. All the glitter’s snow, apparently.

‘Sno fun
January 29, 2013

snofunMe: Look it’s been snowing again overnight – look at the cars!
D: Will there be snow at school today?
Me: Well yes – they might have cleared a path, but there’ll be snow.
D: Because the other day, a man came and sprinkled snow dust all over the place and it MELTED the snow into ice and we’re not allowed to play on the ice. There was just a line of snow left and all the children were on one side of the line and all you could do was walk – up, down, up, down, up, down, up, down on the line. It was sooooo boring!

The perfect Snow Angel
January 19, 2013

D: I like doing Snow Angels… How do I get up? …Mum, will you lift me straight up please, so I don’t break it?

1. Wait until it snows
2. Lie on ground
3. Flap arms and legs up and down
4. Levitate and move away

Warm and toasty in the snow
January 15, 2013

warmtoastyMe: What did you talk about at school today?

D: What’s our favourite weather.

Me: And what’s YOUR favourite weather?

D: Snow… No… Sun.

Me: Why’s that?

D: Because when it’s sunny you get all toasted and you don’t need the heating on. What’s your favourite weather?

Me: I like a bit of snow sometimes and I like a bit of sun sometimes. I don’t much like rain though.

D: No, I don’t like rain. What’s your favourite year?

Me: Do you mean time of year?

D: Yes.

Me: I like ALL of the seasons – they all have something to offer – Spring, Summer, Autumn and Winter. Although I don’t much like it when leaves fall off the trees in Autumn and ALL decide to fall into our garden.

D: Do you want to know my favourite season?

Me: Go on.

D: Summer – because it NEVER rains in Summer. It’s sunny EVERY day.

Me: It rains sometimes in Summer – what would happen to all the plants if it didn’t rain?

D: Yes – they’d die…

D: It’s not a picture – that’s cotton wool, they’re little purple cotton wool dots, that’s – what are the furry things with metal down the middle?

Me: Pipe cleaners.
