Snow Man

Welsh men take snowmen construction very seriously.
Not for them a dainty fey snow creature...oh no.

Snowmen must be BIG. Bigger than the kids...

bigger than the wife or indeed the wife's car...

and then, once the snowman is built to satisfactory standards,
a man must then win all snowball fights
and break three tea trays hurtling down snowy slopes.

it was fun though :o)

I always knew you Welsh were a hardy lot. Hardier than any namby-pampy Mancurian like the one I married. (But just barely.)

Absolutely brilliant! Now you've got a taste of Canada, eh? Only our snowmen aren't so cool - you guys have talent! :-D

What a beautiful place you live in...so glad you had enough snow to experience the fun part of winter!
The snowman is great!

It's because Welsh men never really grow up.

LOL! and what is it (all that dark matter) in Welsh snowmen that adds volume to the final product? And is that 'cheating'?! ;-)

I don't know about you but I have not had so much family fun in ages, even the MR came out to enjoy the snow!!
