Snow Fight On The Last Day Of School

What a great day to end the school term. We woke up on Friday morning to a white blanket of snow again. The first wave of snow at the end of November only lasted for a few days, but it was heavy enough to cancel a few trains. It was funny really, the snow was so heavy on Saturday, and yet by Sunday morning, the temperature had risen to 4 celcius, causing the snow to start melting. For the rest of the week, we had to tolerate the icy and slippery road.


But this time, it's been snowing steadily since Thursday night until today. It was fun walking to school on Friday morning in the snow. We were late, but I was not worried because I expect a lot of students would be late as well :D


My 2 friends and I were planning to have breakfast in The Hague, but because of the heavy snow, we changed our plan, worried that we might not arrive back in time to collect our children. So we went to the nearby mega supermarket to shop and had breakfast there. When we got back to school at 12 o'clock, the children were having fun playing snow fight. Among them I could see some of the teachers as well.


We stayed for a little while to let Ilham snow sledding on the dunes in the school area. Unlike our previous place in Amsterdam, here we have to drive in order to get to sledding area, so its not very convenient. At our old place, the small "hill" was only 3 minutes walk away....


Let's see the children with their snow fight....





Ilham sure had a nice time :D

Cheqna,

We had one foot snow around our house. Read that this is one of the worst in a century in Britain (perhaps Holland too). Can u recall that much snow when we were there? I couldn't :)

Remember once at Newcastle, when classes were cancelled bcos the snow was disrupting transportations? had to walk back to the hostel, luckily it was nearby..tapi tak lah pulak nak gi main2 snow tu..sejukkkk..baik duduk kat bilik..hehe

:-)

Yeah I remember that. We(but I don't think u followed)Roha,Cuta & Izanee &Diah went to the nearby park at our house to make snowman :D, Then in N'tle Uni, there was a giant snowman- we went there too, to take pictures. But I think, it was not so scenic, the snow became mushy around house area... We had to go to the park to feel the snow ambiance.

hey...didn't u walk everyday to class?? Yeah..the hostel was much warmer than my house. I wonder what happenend to Ina now?

Cheqna said...

Yes I did, that's why didnt follow u all back then, baik balik berselimut bawah duvet and tido..hahaha.

Ina is fine I guess, last bersms with her during raya haji, met her in Kuching few years back.., nanti will try to copy her latest photo from her son's FB (boleh ke??)
