Missing snow

As a Canadian, I am used to snow. A lot of snow. I always found the first snow quite magical... and so beautiful! It always was a special day for me. Of course, once Christmas was over, it was getting on my nerves by making everything so difficult! I never actually thought I would ever miss it... But I was wrong as I miss it terribly! Since moving to the UK almost four years ago, I have barely seen snow so on the rare occasions, I made the most of it! Last January, there were quite a few snow days here in  Manchester so my husband and I took the opportunity to take some photos. It was the perfect time to wear my lovely vintage hat! (Which my husband nicknamed "Microphone Head")

I really hope to have the chance to enjoy some snow this year as well! It's falling everywhere BUT in Manchester these days...

In Manchester

I have been a terrible blogger! Despite all my good intentions to post on a regular basis, I always seem to be too busy... Especially now that I am back to work.

Last week, my husband and I went to the town center of Manchester for the day and we had a lovely time! Since it is fairly near to where we live, it is something we do quite regularly and even though it is not the New York or Montreal I am used to, I always enjoy going.
Here are some pictures which were taken then:

The next picture is a bit random, but I really love that fan so I had to take a picture of it.

Me enjoying a delicious "Cosmopolitan"... And looking slightly darker than deathly pale. I have gone so pale since moving here to the UK that even my family is a bit shocked when they see me!
