It has finally happened. It almost didn’t. Waiting until the 29th of December seems simply cruel, yet the first snows have fallen for the winter in central Scotland.
Walking anonymously The snows have come. I can pull on my waterproof trousers and my walking boots. Slip my gaiters over my ankles and secure them tight. I can put on my waterproof jacket and my fleece hat. Pull the hood over my head, run the toggles tight. I can slip on my fleece gloves and my waterproof mitts. Pull cuffs over my wrists and secure them tight. I can step through my door into the comforting blanket of tiny white ballerinas twirling and pirouetting and smiling as they realise I can finally walk anonymously.
