the mystery of the leaning snowman of pisa

there's a snow man in the garden, nothing so unusual about that.



except this one appeared in the night whilst the children were sleeping.................

I can't imagine what the neighbours thought as J and I messed about in the dark giggling furiously, looks like our snowman has been at the wine, he's a bit lopsided, my excuse is that it was dark!

there has been much discussion this morning as to where he came from, and who made him. our footprints from the night before we totally covered by more snow, the only tracks were those of the cats.......................

  1. :-) you really must love snow. I went outside today for about 5 minutes and planning to spend the rest of the day inside. My daughter also seems to prefer to look at snow from the inside.

  3. What sweet memories this will be for your children, my Grandfather did the same thing for me when I ws tiny. He cheated though and used a gas cylinder as a body, tapped the snow around it. Of course I didn't know this until the thaw.

  7. That;s really made me smile - he looks very cheeky to me. Maybe he's had a couple too many snowballs, like certain grannies at christmas can..
