It started snowing on Friday and stopped sometime early yesterday morning (Monday), so it’s pretty much a winter wonderland around here. Well, that is until you need to go anywhere, then it’s just a winter nightmare! We get snow so infrequently that the UK is ill prepared for it. A foot of snow and slush has now frozen as temperatures dropped to minus double figures this morning.
Yesterday afternoon, I ventured out to take some photos and pop to the village shop to post letters. The snow reached up to the top of my snow boots in places, so it wasn’t easy going in the deep snow. It was slippery too. Shortly before I took this photo I did an excellent impression of Bambi as my feet threatened to go from underneath me. Thankfully, I managed to stay upright!
In other news, I am so behind with Christmas! A small handful of cards have been sent out, with others yet to be done (I’m making my own this year, but at this rate I might have to buy a few!). I’ve only bought one present so far, yet in a fortnight it’ll all be over and we’ll be sat here still full of festive food and a bit tipsy! I’d best get a move on…….
