For well over a month now we have had seriously dark and gloomy weather here. I don't just mean grey, overcast skies. We're used to that!
I mean really, really dark grey days. Days where it feels as though the sun has forgotten to rise at all. Where you need the same amount of lights on in the house during the day time as you do at night.
I had begun to long for the cold, frosty days we had enjoyed at the end of November and the beginning of December. They may have been cold but at least they were bright and somewhat cheerful!
So it was with some joy that Saturday broke the cycle.
We had planned to meet up with some old friends of my husbands and his sister. Since they have three boys the same ages as our oldest three, going for a long walk after lunch seemed like a good way to spend the afternoon!
The grey skies were back again by Sunday, but this time it didn't seem so bad as they brought the snow with them!
