Oops, Santa didnt get outta the way quick enough!


Hehehehe, I absolutely LOVED this photo! It makes the PERFECT ending to Christmas! Not that I had a bad Christmas - got LOTSA gifts, gave even more gifts, ate a lotta good food (minus the turkey), and threw a snowball at Pete. Yes, A snowball. One. Singular. That's because it never snows more than that in Shrewsbury! It very nearly wasnt a white Christmas here, in spite of the weather forecast (lotsa snow, they said). But around 9pm, when I looked out of the window, it had snowed quietly and whitely, enough to cover the ground in a thin layer. And there was enough snow on the car bonnet and roof for me to gather it up and make a snowball to throw at Pete. I didnt miss - but he made a bigger, better snowball... and he didnt miss either. Didnt love the snow quite so much when it got down my sweater, so I went back inside the nice warm house and looked out at the snow in the moonlight. Nice!

Prabhu, what did you mean about fair & lovely? An advt or something?

Shyam said...

Thanks, Rums :-)

Harish, I'm CERTAIN you'll see snow at some point in your life - probably sooner rather than later :) My first snowfall was in Srinagar, LOOOOOOOOONG back - when you were about 2 years old, I think ;)

Ravi, many thanks! :)

Prabz - whoever got the idea of painting Santa on the nose of the plane must have had a crazy sense of humour! :) Appealed to me very much!

Once upon a time, the mositurisers and fairness creams were referred as snow :-)

Hope you had a very nice christmas and wish you and your family a very happy new year too.
