_ As you can see, I have a new scarf.

Laura’s Mum knows I like to watch football, so she made a little surprise for me when we went to visit on Saturday. She said it was to help me support Laura’s Dad’s favourite team, Rotherham United, although there are many other red and white teams so it is a multi-purpose scarf I can wear just about any weekend.

Perhaps soon I’ll be taken to a match to show off my new scarf, I’ll have to drop some subtle hints…

_ I have been watching the news all week and looking out of the window waiting for the snow to come. It sounds so beautiful, this fluffy stuff that can cover the ground and turn everything soft and white.  It’s hard to believe that every snowflake is different; how do they know that? Have people been collecting and comparing them?

Laura has said that we can go out and play in it if there is enough, maybe even make a snowman, or snowbear depending on how much snow there is. All I know is that it’s really cold out there and I will need to wrap up warm.  I can always come inside if I get too cold, but the snowman won’t be able to because he will melt and that’s a bit sad, but then again he likes to be cold, I don’t!
