Our local winter wonderland

On Saturday we awoke to the most glorious day - clear blue skies, crisp air (maybe crisp is an understatement - I think it was a lovely minus 10 when we left the house!) and WHITE! White, white everywhere...




And not just snow - but a frozen pond, only a couple of minutes walk from our house!!!


It was perfect for some schaatsen...




Mr Oliver was happy to get out of his pram and watch what was going on - toboggans, skaters, pets and families all out and about making the most of the cold snap...




My legs are sore and aching today - it's been a loooong time since I last used my skates, but... I can't wait to go back for another skate this afternoon!!!

  1. Hey Lu,
    I heard you were having a major cold snap in Europe. So glad you can put it to good use :-)
    You'll have to do some skating for those of us who are melting in Aus.
    Enjoy,
    Selina.

  2. Yup, it seems to have hit everywhere here (I think we had temps of -17 on the weekend!!!). Mum was telling me this morning how hot it is in Qld at the moment - except for the ice skating, I think I'd quite happily swap this cold snap for some warm weather :) Hope you had a great time in Melbourne!

  3. Hey Lu,
    Yeah, Melbourne was awesome!! The course I did was really good, and it was great to meet heaps of people at it.
    I went to the Queen Victoria Night Markets one night, they were soooo good, thousands of people and so much food, it had a great atmosphere. I did some shopping as well, and got to have a bit of a look around. There was a DFO across from the uni, which was good to check out. But Melbourne really did have all 4 seasons in one day, boiling hot, freezing cold, rain, and then pleasant...
    Oh, and they have Zara too...I wish we had it in Brissy :-)
    Have a great day, and stay warm,
    Selina.
