As you can see from the pic on the left, Uncle Davey has been making a snowman with his (nearly) three year-old niece. We had a great time shovelling the snow around in an attempt at making some sort of snowman.
Unfortunately our attempts were rather unsuccessful. It has a hat on, potatoes for eyes and a carrot for a nose, plus a hat and scarf, but infortunately nothing like a humanish shape. It’s just a pile of snow that’s been slightly moulded.
The snow that had fallen today was very powdery and refused to be made into balls. The stuff underneath was pretty icey, and also quite unmouldable. Such are my excuses for making a crap snowman, not that I’ve had any practice at such things for about a decade or so, but you’d think that I’d have done a little better.
Still, we had a lot of fun doing it. The niece and I are getting well and truly bonded ;-)
