After a week of everywhere else in the UK getting snow and Edinburgh cruelly not, we finally got our just desserts.

Snowball shield

One glorious inch of it.

snowball fight

Thankfully we got out for snow-jinks early yesterday morning as it was all gone by the afternoon.


It was just enough for a spot of light sledding.


More than enough for snowball fights.

And plenty for snow angels.

With more on the way this week, I hope we get some more play time.

Without the schools being closed, Edinburgh Council.

** If you haven't seen it yet, I highly recommend heading over to Capturing Childhood's post on how to take great pictures in the snow.  I'm glad I read it the night before!


  1. Looks like a lot of fun! We don't get snow often here so when we do, it's play, play, play. (and all too often they close school for a mere 1/2 inch of snow, or even the threat of snow...wimps!)

    1. A lot of schools in England have already closed for tomorrow! Hoping Edinburgh doesn't follow suit, but we'll see :)

  2. ah so jealous. Only a few flakes in Glasgow. At least the dusting apparently was enough for a snowball fight at school. Fab photos!
