It feels like it has been century since we’ve had heavy snow in Hitchin. When people say there will be snow this weekend, I just brushed it off “Yeah! – As if! We don’t get snow in Hitchin. Everywhere else on the Island of United Kingdom – yes – but not Hitchin”. It turned out – I was wrong!
Ethan came down stairs, excitedly with the biggest smile on his face. “Look outside the window Mummy! Look! There’s snow everywhere!”. He withdrawn the curtains and there it was 3 inches of snow laid across our garden. The spectacle was quite stunning! I feel like a kid all over again!
Like any excited do, I told the kids they can go outside as soon as they finished breakfast, and my goodness I have never seen them ate so fast! Here is out little outing after breakfast. If you are a follower on Facebook then you’ll probably already have seen this – if not then here it is.
Later the day, we went to see our friends who came all the way from Italy and had a lunch at our local and lovely pub, The Millstream. And the kids went out to play in the snow again in their beer garden. It was such a beautiful pub, but typical me I’ve forgot my camera. All I took on my phone that came out nice looking was my roast lunch. I’m telling you I haven’t had a decent lunch like this a long time and it was definitely the dish I would recommend that would awesomely warmed up appetite if you ever stopped by.
The next day all schools in Hitchin announced that they were closed for the day. Ethan was supposed to have his school play any my O.H. took the day off just for this. But that’s okay, because this means he’ll get to spend some quality time with the kids, which doesn’t happened often enough, especially playing in snow.
Even though the snow seem to be melting away a little over night which has turned into muddy slosh more than anything, there were still enough snow for us to do a little sledging upon the little hill in our local park. We called it Sloshing.
Did you have snow where you are? Did you go Sloshing like us? Let us know in the comment below we love to hear all about it. 🙂
