Yours truly! March 2018

All photographs taken by meee (except the first!), A. Shepherdson 🙂

The ‘Beast from the East’ is set to visit our shores once again! For goodness sake I’ve had enough of this Siberian ‘snow beast’ for one Winter, we Brits love talking about atrocious weather conditions yet we’re never prepared when it arrives? No word of a lie once snow begins to settle on the roads my beloved country soon grinds to a frigging halt, transport stops, schools close and worst of all selfish people clear the grocery shelves of all bread and milk! Absolutely crazy behaviour and just so as you know, the sight of panic buying makes my blood boil, it’s so pointless and needless! 😀 Rant over.

Three occasions this winter Russia’s frozen Beast has dumped snow over the UK, 3 times the local buses have stopped running and my central heating’s been on permanently, I shudder to imagine what my next gas bill’s gonna cost me? :/

(Btw I’ve more 2018 snow blog photos to share! Yes?)

Don’t get me wrong living in snowy Oxford can be fun and a novelty, for youngsters, but commuting to work’s been a frigging nightmare this year, so that’s enough fun and novelty for 2018 thank you very much 🙂

The following day, noticed I’ve just cleared my mother’s path for her!

🙂 I hope those in sunnier warmer countries enjoyed these pics.

  1. You can use the one taken at dusk with street lights on as a Christmas card this year. I particularly like that one. Our weather is just as bad. The wind and the endless rain is keeping us indoors, and we are wearing our winter gear: sweatpants and long-sleeved t-shirts. Yes, haha, I know you’re laughing your ass off, but in my books any temperature below 20°C is torture.

    • 😀 ‘Any temperature below 20 is torture!’ Seriously us Brits bodys become SO accustomed to the cold that 25+ is unbearable, the wind and rain I like it’s the zero temperatures I hate! -6 the other night!

      (……..and the saying ‘we love talking about our weather is quite quite true, comes from the fact you can experience all FOUR seasons in one day! Which coat to take? See lolol)
