I can't feel anything and its bringing me down

One downside of living in the city centre is the lack of outdoor space to make use of during the snowy days we've been having this week. After seeing post upon post of people's pretty countryside walks with fields of fluffy white snow, I was starting to get frustrated by the lack of open spaces filled with people sledging and making snowmen near where I live. In town, it seems the snow is merely considered an inconvenience affecting commuters still trying to totter to work in their heels (seriously, are these people too 'executive' to consider wellies or boots even just to walk to their office door?!), so in a desperate attempt to FINALLY get out and actually stomp about in the snow a little bit I became the sole person in Leeds City Centre to venture into the nearest park and then wander down the canal just to soak up the beauty of it all. And despite the lack of a playful atmosphere that comes with living near a 'real' park, I must admit that I enjoyed having this tiny little patch of snow that had been virtually untouched before I'd ventured in.

    1. Its such a pain not living near any fields or proper parks, but it was nice to have a little wander around town in the snow :) x

  3. It can be so frustrating living in the centre of a town can't it? I work in a wee village out of Edinburgh but live in the city- so it's been nice to see blankets of snow somehow! Edinburgh is nothing but slush. Love the photos :-) xx

    1. It really can! Its so convenient most of the time but sometimes its nice not to be surrounded by traffic and buildings. Glad you got to experience the snow at least a little! x

  4. Great snowy pics- if anything the urban contrast against it give it a bit more excitement! For me it's just fields. Especially love the one by the canal xx

    1. I think its always a case of wanting what you can't have! Although Leeds does look pretty covered in snow (the bits that haven't turned to slush yet at least!). x
