Snow

It was a very white this Christmas - more snow than we are used to.....I drove home on the 23rd, struggled out of my street (eventually had to drive the car the wrong way down the one-way street/hill to get onto the main road) but made it the 75 miles home to my parents without further difficulty. I took a walk after I arrived, up to the canal, climbing my childhood sledging hill in the process, watching the next generation take to the slopes and then through the serene, pristine woods that line the frozen canal.....beautiful....and it is snowing again as I sit here typing, I am watching it drift down in the night sky, huge white flakes twisting and tumbling, everyone different....how white will it be when I wake tomorrow!

I hope everyone had a lovely Christmas too!






Excuse the low resolution photos! White is never the best in low resolution.

Hi, glad you had some snow, but could I swap some sunshine with you? Start to seriously miss it, even though we keep a high moral about it.
