The Snowdog


In 2012, 30 years after the original Snowman film, based on the book written by Raymond Briggs was released, the animated Snowman and Snowdog was released. I'm old school and still prefer the original. Even to this day the ending makes me tearful, but then I always was hopeless with goodbyes! E.T. has the same effect!

Our local NT gardens, Nymans, has come up trumps once again and created a yarnbombing and Snowdog extravaganza for the little ones over Christmas. My days of having my own small person might be long past [TYM is home this weekend...haven't seen him since the 8th September so am really looking forwards to having him back. We're very close], but it didn't prevent Mr GBT and I going along to enjoy the fun too!










When the light levels are low and the days are short at this time of year it seems imperative to go out and really take advantage of those fewer bright days we do have to top up sunshine and be better prepared mentally to cope with the higher number of grey ones.

  2. I hear you on the need to get outside a bit. We've had a dark haze the last few days making it even worse. We don't have snow dogs around here positioned for walking tours, but the Peanut's Charlie Brown characters in statue are all over St Paul and Minneapolis and surrounding communities and make a nice visual to seek out.

  3. Each time I watch the Snowdog animation I'm in tears and your delightful post has made me " well up" thinking of it.I wish that I lived nearer to Nymans - it looks beautiful x
