Cheetahs In My Shoes

living with the imaginary menagerie and all that it entails

You’re Beautiful – Loaded Branches


It’s been a bit of a dark week for the Cheetah Keeper’s mummy – I feel a bit like the snail in Julia Donaldson‘s The Snail & The Whale – “the snail felt hopeless and terribly small”…

On Saturday night the snow started falling.  I am terrified of snow.  The risks of falling and what might happen if I did overwhelm me.  I worry about what may happen if the children fall awkwardly.  However, as I wrapped the children up on Sunday morning I realised I wanted to photograph the fun that they were having.  So, I put on my wellies, wrapped up and went out.  Into crunchy, perfect snowman/snowball snow.  And instead of taking 3 pictures and heading back in again, I stayed out – for snowball fights, photos and general silliness.  All 4 of us, out there, together.  Then we went sledging!  Not big sledging, but I went out and walked down the hill (and took loads of pictures) with my family.  I crunched through the snow where I couldn’t slip – we had fun, we went home and we drank hot chocolate with excessive quantities of marshmallows and squirty cream.

So, here are my photos, that I took, of what terrifies me.  It was beautiful.

Many apologies for the linky not working quite as it should last week – changes have been made!  So, please link up your beautiful words, pictures, creations or acquisitions – and share what you think is beautiful with the rest of us
