We went to our friends house today in Llanarmon DC, it was snowing when we got there and the wind was blowing a bit of a blizzard. We did really well until we headed up the lane towards there home and then we got stuck on the road. We tried to get the car up but in the end we had to abandon it. Luckily we were able to park it at a holiday cottage which was not being used and we walked up the hill. On the way we walked along the stream and it was so wonderful to see the icicles in the stream, you can see them in the picture above.
The stream was quite fast flowing with all the snow.

This is a picture of me and Joe on the walk up the hill to our friends house. The walk was steep and by the end of it I was boiling hot!

Oliver is my friends youngest son. He is 2 and a bit years old and a complete joy. He is sooooo funny and entertaining. He was ready to go sledging here but only lasted a short while in the cold!

My friend Llinos, my son Harry and her daugher Eleri having some sledging fun. You can see how thick and fast the snow was falling.

I had to take this picture of the view from the hill, it was so beautiful. At this point, Jason, Llinos and the children were higher up having sledging fun. The snow was being whipped up so much I decided to stay put where I was.

Alvin, Oliver and Jason getting ready for some sledging action. Didn't manage to stay out long because it was so cold and the horses had to be brought into their stables.
It was so cold up there but the children had so much fun. I wished I didn't feel the cold so much otherwise I would have had alot more fun myself. Mental note to self...... must get myself some insulated trousers and then I can participate!


  1. Hi Sara
    Such great pictures.... so nice to see the joy of the season. You look great
    Wanted to wish you a very Merry Xmas, filled with love, joy and family
    Merry Xmas Sara

  2. Now this was meant to be....enjoy! Snow makes the Chirstmas season perfect...much love on this wonderful snowy day.........:-) Hugs

  3. Oh so glad to see you having a good time. Take care as the cold can really get you. It is tough to feel you can't deal with things like you used to. It will come back. I just know it will. Blessings

  4. Sara, get yourself some longjohns right now. NO good being chilled to the bone in this magical landscape you have shown. I'm thinkin' about sneaking over there and giving Oliver a hug.

  5. Sounds like you had a good day with the kids. Sledging? Is that like sledding? I see you have a little Oliver living around you. It's a rare name in the US but my first grandson's name. Where he lives, it is pronounced "o-live-vah" (in Boston-not here in the Midwest).I like the picture of the snow covered hill the best.

  6. It's wonderful to see snow from your perspective. Your "view from the hill" is lovely. By March we will be sick of snow in my part of the world!

  7. What a wonderful evening of fun in the snow! I think you've got my snow missy!! We've got none and are expecting rain/freezing rain Christmas Eve and Christmas Day -- and of course it will be mild. Normally by this time we'd have what you've got. But hey Sara? You can keep it!! :)

  8. What marvelous snowy photos in your world with wonderful snaps of your loved ones too with delightful touches of red. Thanks so much for sharing and for visiting Small Reflections recently ... reminding me I've not dropped by in a while. Perhaps life will slow down a bit after the holidays and I'll have more time for blogging.
    Hugs and blessings,


I value each and every comment left, they keep me going and give me strength!
