I decided that having started this blog I could use some inspiration to actualy write something other than just posting various random thoughts I have - glittery pink trump clouds are just not going to cut the mustard lol! So I googled for some blog prompts and found The One Minute Writer
Todays prompt being - Write about a memory of playing in the snow. Well truthfully I cant remember playing in the snow as a kid. I know we had snow but I just dont have a memory of it lol. And to be honest we have only had an inch or two last winter which Shelby and I did play in.
What I can remember though is one particular winter when I was in my mid 20's. I lived in Swaffham then, with my parents actually. Anyway this particular day my friend Jo (whom I have lost touch with but wish I could trace) had rung me to say lets go for a night out! Never one to turn down a night on the town I promptly agreed. I was to go to Kings Lynn our favourite stomping ground.
In the afternoon, however, the weather tried to scupper my plans! It started snowing. Not light snow - a blizzard! But I wasnt going to let that stop me oh no!! I was on a mission - I had to have my night out! So in my car I got!! Well it was awfull - the snow was blowing horizontally - it was a white out - I crawled along in the car - I dont think I even had a blanket in the car. Goodness knows what would have happened if I had broken down!
I plodded forward in my car and took an hour and half to go a forty minute journey! Very stupid of me!! But - I had a great night out!!
