More Snow – 16 December 2009


Today has seen it snow on and off since lunchtime. But, this morning, it was just very icy. My good friend Jake Smith told me, when we cycled to school together, that he had already fallen off his bike three times. I was slightly surprised, as I didn’t think it would be that icy. So, rather cockily, we continued. Half way there, and I came off after skidding on some ice, embarrassingly in front of three of my female classmates. I had ripped my trousers, but I thought that I was alright. It was only when I arrived at school when I discovered my knee bleeding quite badly.

House+snowSo after lunch, during double-history, I found myself looking out of the window. Just then, it started snowing, and heavily too. It was on and off for the next three and a half hours.

After school, I had a rehearsal for the school musical. The stage was set up, and the piano was brought up to the stage. But just as we were about to begin, one of the deputy headteachers enforced the rehearsal to be cancelled for our own health and safety. This was great news, I didn’t know a lot of my lines, so it gave me extra time to rehearse.

When I got home – fortunately without any embarrassing accidents – I took some pictures and video of the snow around the house. The video footage will be used in the Christmas Lights Santa’s Grotto video. The photos, however, were taken especially for you. So here is my early Christmas Present to you, dear blogmate; an image of snow around my house. Merry Christmas!
