Snow fever

This time last week I was jumping up and down with joy at the sight of the lovely white flakes falling from the sky. I would have been aghast at the very idea that there could be such a thing as too much snow. Yet here I am a week later, fed up of this incessant wintry weather. It was great fun of course. For a while. The snow cat was built. A snow giraffe followed. Next up was a snow fort. And finally an igloo. But I've rather run out of steam and inspiration since then. I'm fed up of having to wear wellies every time I leave the house. I'm annoyed at being unable to drive wherever and whenever I want to. I just got back from a quick trip into town and my trainers appear to have acquired a permanent squelch. My feet are suitably wet and it's horrible and slushy out there. In some ways that's a good thing. Everything is thawing. But the weathermen inform me that a 'winter storm' is on the way. Oh goodie. Just what we need.

Incidentally I also saw a mad woman in town. She was wearing the tiniest denim shorts possible. Yes, she had tights on underneath but they were hardly woolly ones. What's wrong with these people?!

Wet feet make me grumpy. Can you tell?

Your grumpy posts are the best. ‘Yes, she had tights on underneath but they were hardly woolly ones’. Cracked me up. Giraffe-a-licious, you’re getting old ;)

I'm a Christian and my faith is of the utmost importance to me.

Are you a Catholic?

Giraffe-a-licious said...

Not a Catholic, nope. If I was going to categorise myself I suppose I'd say I'm a Conservative Evangelical Protestant :)

The Only Church That Christ Established Is The Catholic Church.
"He that believeth and is baptized shall be saved, but he that believeth not shall be condemned." [Mark 16:16].

Funnily enough, I don't agree with you on that one!

But in accordance with Mark 16 - I do believeth, have been baptized and I am saved, not condemned :)
