First snow in ages

Cottenham village green December 2017

10 December 2017

We woke this morning to a light blanket of snow and I couldn’t resist heading over to the village green to get some photos. Last winter was bitterly cold but we didn’t get any snow, so I imagine there was much excitement today and it was great to see teenagers having snowball fights in the streets and parents helping little ones build chunky snowmen.

Our village may not have the largest Christmas tree around but I still get a buzz from driving past at night when the lights are on.  Christmas lights are absolutely one of my favourite things about this time of year and I’ll never tire of seeing how they transform quite ordinary buildings into magical fairy kingdoms.

Seeing all the snow covered houses is making me itch to start on some new paper projects, with generous sprinklings of glitter…
