The view from our window with the snow clouds coming in last night:
A blizzard like this (yes, a blizzard...we Irish NEVER exaggerate) requires some special apparel to navigate the streets unscathed. I noticed (after almost falling on my face) that my boots had no traction whatsoever, and that my feet were freezing off, so I decided some wellies were in order. Amazingly, I've been living back in Ireland for three years and have never owned a pair in my adult life, a decision I have been sorely regretting this week. So today I decided that the insanity had to end and I ventured out to buy my first pair of grown up wellies! So off C and I went, enjoying the snow that was lightly falling. I decided that putting C in the Bjorn and taking the bus was the only feasible way to go (strollers + snow = disaster!) and off we went:
Hunters I've been coveting (black, size 6 - thanks, Santa). Just kidding...I'd be on the naughty list for that. :) I did, however, get distracted by a fab leopard coat in Penneys (Primark for you gals in the UK) which is now on my Christmas list. The photo really doesn't do it justice, but I found a pic of it in action. For €40, how can you beat that?!

After that diversion I walked outside and saw that the snow decided that it was time to really start coming down. Here's the view from O'Connell Bridge:

Here's hoping tomorrow's a snow day. Happy Thursday, everyone!
