Spring has sprung

I have been very optimistic this week about the arrival of ‘spring’ in Siberia. I got new shoes that can’t be worn in the snow, I’ve already started wearing dresses again, and I stopped wearing a hat a long time ago. Since the bad winds we had last week (which sent another lot of snow to England..soz!) we’ve had very mild weather. By mild I mean above -10c and I’m sure I’ve seen some blossom on a tree. Today it felt warm on my way to school. When I came out at 17:30, I was met with a mass snowball fight with hundreds of children climbing up and throwing snow at each other. Snow only sticks when it’s warm.

I hate having wet feet and the fear of forgetting your brolly. All of the shoe shops have got wellies in at the moment, I think I’m going to get some as there is a lot of snow which is going to melt soon, we hope, and I’m not ruining my new spring boots 😉
hello spring
