Snowed in, Day off & No Work Done
Due to the snow I got the day off college yesterday! Weirdly they let us know the day before and shut it due to severe forecasts - something that has never happened before. Not believing this would come true, I planned to write another chapter or two and get on with my work on a normal free day. However when I woke up and was greeted by everything covered in white the snow was just too good to pass up.
Instead of writing I went for a walk around the woods near my house. Although this wasn't the best idea I've ever had as it's mostly up hill, everything did look so pretty and I felt like I was walking through Narnia or something. Due to the fact it wasn't the smartest thing, not many people had ventured out of their houses so a lot of the snow was undisturbed as well so it added to the overall beauty.
I only planned to go for a quick walk, telling myself I would get some work done when I got home, but when I decided to take what I thought was a short cut, through the middle of the woods, it turned into a very long 2 hours. I couldn't figure out where I was as everything looks a lot different in the snow and therefore more confusing. It had nothing to do with my bad sense of direction in general. It was nearly dark by the time I reached home and I felt half dead but snow days are the best. I will admit that I would prefer sun anytime but the rare snowy days are great for a change. As well as that, it's one of the nicest feelings coming home and curling up with a hot chocolate in front of the fire.
