For just over a week, I have watched weather reports and Facebook with jealousy. I love snow and since we didn’t get any last year here in the centre of Cardiff, I was desperate for some this year. For the four years I have lived in the city I haven’t had a chance to make a snowman or even play in the snow. This year, despite feeling really ill, I was able to make it outside. Not having to climb stairs is a real help. Usually any cold makes my muscles tighten and cause me a lot of pain (it’s not fair that this doesn’t result in toned muscles) so I put A LOT of layers on. I mean a lot. It was like the longest strip you’ve ever seen when I came back inside. If it’d been a strip tease, you would have had to include an intermission.
P brought me a chair to sit on outside so that I could watch him make a snowman. It wasn’t actually that cold outside so I wasn’t shivering. He didn’t have much to work with since we had just about an inch of snow and even that was melting pretty fast. He did, however, manage to make some semblance of a snowman, which we then turned into a fashionable lady, boobs and all.
The other reason I really wanted to get snow here was because I knew (or so I thought) that Didi would love playing in it. I seriously misjudged this. It turns out that all the pampering she receives has turned her into quite the wimp. She hated being outside and touching the cold stuff. When we got back into the house she curled up on my lap and quickly fell into a deep sleep, and has remained there ever since. Traumatic experiences really take it out of her.
The last reason that getting snow was so great was because it gave me the impetus to try making a video for the first time. I used my iPad and the ‘iMovie‘ app to make the video below. It’s only 38 seconds long but I don’t think it’s too shabby for a first attempt. I reckon using videos on here a lot more is a good idea. It means that when I feel too sick and dizzy to look at the computer screen I can record a vlog, or be able to show you more of my world.

Time to head off into the snow again for a hot chocolate with my favourite guy.
