Given that he’s only 8 months old and from Cyprus, it was Buddy’s first taste of snow this weekend
and he went absolutely mad for it!!
Up in Manchester the best bit of snow fell on Saturday morning; me & Buddy were straight out. It was so great to see him playing, jumping around and enjoying a new experience. He seemed to really like the taste of the snow and ice – speaking of which he found a big piece of ice and brought it inside, placing it just behind my mum as she stood in the kitchen – what a prankster!
On Sunday I went on an 8 mile scout hike over the hills and moorland in our area. That’s why this is a short blog, ‘cos as soon as I got in, it was PJ’s on, hot chocolate, whilst I thawed in front of the fire!
The hike was part of my 2nd class award and included ‘exploration’ skills, such as how to use a compass and how to set up a map. The walk was pretty much unsupervised by adults, although there was spotters along the way; it was very tough and exhausting in the blustery conditions, but fun all the same and I saw 3 hares, that’s always a bonus!
Thanks to my scout leader, Buzz for some of the photos
We decorated the Christmas tree yesterday and it really got me in the festive groove; I love Christmas, it’s just brilliant and totally awesome. At school though, we were reminded that Christmas isn’t great for everyone. Some people find it stressful, others get really sad and some just haven’t got enough money to enjoy themselves. That’s why we are taking part in the Key 103’s Cash for Kids, which helps disabled and disadvantaged kids in the area
Have you had any snow this weekend and have you had some festive fun??
