Mark making in the snow

Yesterday I was the grumpiest woman alive, a combination of testing toddlers and general coldness. I started today in a positive manner putting the darkness of yesterday behind me.

So obviously we had scones for breakfast. I always keep a few scone mixes in the cupboard and we had ran out of bread and not enough milk for cereal. Tesco delivery coming later.

Once our teenager has gone off to catch the school bus it’s a quick throw on of clothes and tidy up for me and off to school we go. Today I’ve pinched my husbands under armour top he uses for cycling to wear under a jumper dress. Warm Mum =Happy Mum

Once children deposited at school we have a leisurely stroll home exploring the surroundings.

There is always a plethora of twigs and no toddler can resist a stick. So we all picked a stick and decided to play in the little snow there was.

Our two year old was happy creating any mark swirls, squiggles enjoying seeing her action creating an imprint in the snow.

Our 4 year old however was able to create an ‘H’ for his name, and some ‘x’ marks the spot for treasure and kisses like in a card. He could not quite decide.

It was rather chilly and we knew our food delivery would be here soon so we dug our sticks in deep to the snow on the path and made a trail all the way home.
