With all this snow everywhere it wouldn’t be right to not build a snowman ….
…… but the snow isn’t like the snow we get at home at Christmas, it’s sort of icy and hard and doesn’t roll into a ball very easily.
But not being someone to be put off lightly, I’ve thought horizontally and made a flat snowman!
I had sort of planned ahead and packed a few buttons, just in case I had the opportunity to be creative in the snow, it was most fortuitous, as there were no bits of Czech coal (or stones, for that matter) lying around that I could have used for his eyes or down his front.
But I did find some twigs for his arms and mouth.
It didn’t take me long, and when he was made we talked a while, a bit silly I know …… but I thought it might make him extra special if he knew a few choice snippets about me, my life and what I was doing here.
No one will know that he is there in the snow until they walk up really close to him.
I hope that if people find him, they will say ahhhhh and wonder who made him ….. they’ll never guess in a month of Czech Sundays it was me! Oh….. and I gave him a name, you have to give a snowman a name for him to come to life…… I called him Bob, because I think it’s an easy name to say in Czech and English and I don’t know many names with lots of k’s, j’s and z’s in!
