A while later and I had two snowmen - a little one and a larger one.
boggyb: Need to go and get carrots and something for the eyes
boggyb: Bit hard to find coal these days :) - any suggestions for a modern replacement?
Laura: We've used glow sticks. #creepysnowperson
Tesco didn't have any glow sticks so I settled for the traditional carrot for the nose and slightly-less traditional black olives for the eyes/buttons.
Hmm... needs something more...
I honestly can't remember when I last built a snowman. We just don't generally get that much snow in south-east England.
