Aaaw that would be so sweet. Reminds me of something... we might aswell share some nice snow stories while we're on the topic!
A few years ago I was in Dublin for the weekend and I met two South African guys. I was only 17 and thought I was in love with one of them...still feel funny when I think about him
They were due to be moving on from Dublin and didn't know where to go next, so like you do I said, well if you're ever in Scotland look me up! So they did! 2 weeks after I got back they phoned and said they were coming to stay for the weekend! I was quite shocked because I just didn't expect it. Anyway they came over and 3 weeks later they were still here lol. My Mum adored them and cooked them food everynight and took them sightseeing during the day.
One night I took them out, when we got home we sat around in the kitchen talking and after a while I realised it was snowing heavily but they had their backs to the window so couldn't see.
After a while I told them to close their eyes and I guided them to the back door, when they saw the snow I have never seen anybodies eyes light up like that before! They had never seen real snow before. It was so funny. We played in it til 7am!!! We made the biggest snow man ever and called her Matilda. They were just amazed and I felt great to have been there when they saw it for the first time.
