This afternoon while J-cub napped, we watched an episode of Doctor Who (Planet of the Dead) in preparation for this evening's sob fest when the 10th Doctor leaves us :(
After it got dark, at around tea-time, I thought I could smell burning, and was following my nose around trying to locate it, when I happened to glance out of the back door to see the garden covered in snow. We hadn't seen any weather forecasts so had no idea it was on its way, which made it even more special. It fell so thickly and silently for a couple of hours; it was so peaceful and beautiful. Even though we had a bit of snow last week, I never saw it fall, and it quickly turned to ice so didn't seem real. This evening has more than made up for it, and I've had a whale of a time standing out in it, watching it fall.
We've just finished watching Doctor Who: The End of Days part 2; I cried my eyes out.
It's been such a lovely day with which to kick off 2010.
