Sledging and snowballing are absolute musts on snow days. Hubby, kids (3 of them!) and I kit ourselves out in as many layers of clothing that still permit movement (much of it handknitted!) and wade through the snow to get to the park over the road. We have hours of fun then come home to hot drinks (spiced apple all round), then it’s out again into the garden to build snowmen and make snow angels while we happily chat to folk passing by. Finally hubby builds us a fire (we have open fires in our Victorian home) and we warm ourselves in front of it with content hearts.
