SNOW DAYS!

So all weekend it's been really snowwy here in London, which meant that there was chaos on the roads, children throwing snowballs from all directions, and the whole of England has been working wellington boot chic. (Although I must admit, I do love my wellies!) 
We started off the day by going for a walk in the park with our puppy, Hattie as it was her first snow day! She was so excited to be out, and this must have been the first year where I didn't get grumpy from being cold! - anyone that does not own a faux-fur jacket definitely needs to invest in one! I think i need to get mine amputated off me! I wear it everywhere, and for £52 from BHS you can't really go wrong! (And it's super soft too) 


Hattie was so excited by the snow but we were apprehensive to let her off her lead (she's never been off it before) so we decided to take a trip to a nearby golf course, which surprisingly was completely deserted! It looked like something out of a very pretty film. 



After a little while of wandering, we decided to try letting Hattie off her lead for the first time. (To anyone that doesn't have a dog, this is a pretty scary moment) and thankfully she stayed right by our side! (below Hattie is modeling her ever so lovely starry jacket) 

After spending about 5 minutes along side us, she decided she had done enough behaving and went absolutely crazy! She was so excited to be in the snow and was running and trying to eat it at the same time! I can't say I've ever seen such a small animal move so fast, at some points it looked like she was flying! It made me so happy to see how much she enjoyed herself, bit of a proud parent moment, although she's been exhausted ever since, we can barely get her to move off her bed! 

These photos were taken a couple of days ago, and I apologise for the quality, they were taken on my phone as this was all I had on me! I hope you've all had lovely snow days, and that the snow hasn't caused you too much disruption (or grumpiness) and let me know if you have any animal-in-snow stories to share!
