Mad March

What do you do when you feel a bit delicate after too much Marques de Riscal the night before, when you've done all your singing in church for the weekend, when it's not a Stitch n Bitch week, when you can't go to town because you spent all your money at the SECC, and anyway, there don't seem to be any buses on?

Why you go to Alexandra Park of course!

While there I saw many's the snowman, some Olympians of tomorrow sliding down the slopes with bread crates (luge-Glasgow style), dogs faithfully trying to retrieve snow balls for their masters and plenty of snow art. But the most remarkable thing I saw was a man skiing down the slopes.
Skiing down the slopes in Alexandra Park?!? Or should I say 'piste'? Think I've seen everything now! Posted by Picasa

Great pictures Kathleen ! Tho' I have to say there's clearly someone living in your area who doesn't have enough to do with their time. I've just spent the best part of 2 hours trying to build a halfway decent bog-standard snowman so heaven knows how long the sculptures took ? !

Oh what fun - I love a bit of snow. It certainly brings out the sillys in people! What did you buy at SECC? Do tell...

I love the snow sculptures! I'd really like to be able to photograph snow art like that but no-one gets further than a a very sad looking snowman round our way. Thanks for your lovely comment on my blog.

The snowmen are mindboggling. My children have never seen snow. We think Autumn is here because the temperature dropped below 25C on the weekend. Hell for a knitter!
