So I hear the expected snow was patchy at best. Some parts of the East London but further out in Essex it was heavier and where I live in Kent it is fantastically deep. As you have seen me rattle on about my little puppy, well it was his first snow day experience and he loves the snow, he likes to eat it, roll around and chase snowballs, as you can imagine, I’m over the moon.
