This morning - damp, rain with a hint of sleet.
Take Miss M to nursery - sleet.
By the time I get out of the nursery - snow.
Lunchtime - rain, snow mostly melted.
Getting the Boy from school - bright sunshine.
Go over to friend's house over the road - clouding over.
Half an hour later - sleet.
5 mins later - snow.
15 minutes later - snowing heavily, decide to go and get Miss M before it gets completely dark.
On the way to the nursery - lots of snow, driving a little scarey on the sideroads and at junctions.
On the way back - driving now quite unnerving.
Get back - still snowing, kids all out, snowball fight ensues (6 kids, 3 mums)
World's teeniest snowman built by everybody except me, 'cos I was the only who didn't have gloves on. My friend's garden pretty much de-snowed in the process!
It was only quite a thin layer of snow but, good gravy, it was cold!

My Beloved cycled to the retail park today (six-ish miles) in the melting snow. Loony. I drove there to meet him, we did the shopping then both came back in the car. Good thing too as it was veering indecisively between sleet and hail by then ("Sleet or hail.. which is most unpleasant for the hoomins.."). Of course my car is covered in bike muck now, but at least he got some exercise.

This is the first bit of Fair Isle I ever did - in about Primary 6, so when I was about ten. The tension was way too tight on the green bits, but it's a cute little bag and I use it to keep knitting bits and pieces in (stitch markers and the like).

Setting off - very pretty, in a chilly way.
Snow gates on the A9.
A bit further down the road. I love the hills, they look so naked.
