Do you want to build a snowman?

It’s a snow day! Or as close as Northern Ireland gets to a snow day! Schools have been closed (I am serious), traffic is at a stand still (don’t drive in the snow if you aren’t confident in it!) and people generally look like they are wrapping up to go out in a sub zero climate, myself included. My outfit today comprises of long sleeved top, blue shirt, blue jumper, parka jacket, tights, jeans, trainer socks and fluffy socks.  Not forgetting hat, scarf and gloves. Ok, I may have over...
