My first snow

People sledging

Darragh pulling me and Kate on the sledge

I haven’t seen it before, but the rain turned cold and white at the end of the week there – apparently it’s called snow!

Winter 2009-2010 and 2010-2011 had cold and snowy spells with temperatures much lower than usual here in Ireland. No such luck last winter, when Kate and Darragh got a sledge for Christmas!

But it’s finally had its cobwebs dusted off and been dragged around the field behind our house, carrying some of us. There wasn’t a huge amount of snow, but just enough to enjoy and for me to wear my new, all-in-one suit, which kept me warm and looking like a baby seal!

Here’s a quick video of us in action…
