Snow globes

I’ve been fascinated by snow globes since I was a little girl. Every year mum and I would unpack the old decorations and I loved seeing my tacky plastic snow globe. I think the allure of the snow globe lies in the fact there’s miniature world where where you can repeatedly make it snow. I was going to make one this year but I’ve left buying the glycerine too late now. Apparently you can use baby oil instead but we don’t have any of that (despite having a baby). I think I will get Darwin to help me make one next Christmas.
