I’ve recently noticed how snow seems to elicit opposing reactions from people: either you love it or you hate it. Either you want to stay indoors in the comfort of your own home unless you really have to leave it or you want to go outside and play in the winter wonderland whilst dodging snowballs. I belong to the latter group.
As much as I enjoyed sitting curled up on the sofa on Sunday, watching the snow fall outside, I couldn’t help but feel a strong itch to go for a walk in Battersea Park. After all, this weather comes but once a year and in London, the snow doesn’t hang around for too long. So wrapped up in layers and in my winter coat, I took a stroll along Chelsea Embankment.
What I’d discovered was more than snowy fields. There were snow people and snow sculptures all around with grown ups and adults rolling snowballs. At one point I did wonder whether a father was having more fun than his son whilst building their snowman, given the bottom snowball was actually bigger than the little boy. But that’s what I love about snow. It can bring out the kid in us.
So here are a few photos of my favourite finds. As you’ll see, Battersea Park turned into one big snowy playground and I loved every minute of it.

The bf and I made this little fella:
As it started to get dark, no one was in a rush to go home …
But for me it was the perfect time to head off because I caught my favourite bridge in its best light:
Doesn’t it look so pretty? x
