I didn’t want to leave Ballater today. It started snowing heavily this morning and it was the kind of snow that settles for a few days; the best kind of snow. The flakes were huge and dry and it wasn’t windy or particularly cold. The snow followed us all the way back home, turning to rain just west of Aberdeen. Even Banchory was cloaked in the white stuff. I’m proud of myself for driving in it without going into panic and freak-out mode.

This fantastic song is by an Australian band called The Winter People. I’m definitely a winter person.
