Well - it finally arrived yesterday, even though it looked like sieved icing sugar falling from the sky all day long and eventually gave us about 4/5 inches. I must admit I do like a good snow shower of large snowflakes which can mesmerise you as you gaze out of the window. But I'm not complaining. We took a walk to our daughter's Sunday afternoon through the woods with my camera in tow.
It was quite magical
and so still - just the occasional bird tweeting
I don't drive in the snow and ice so this morning's school run was of the more
healthier walking kind.
which took us up a pretty steep hill through the woods
towards the church at the top
and up through the churchyard
A bit out of puff when I got to the top (must get fit) - but the view was stunning
Dropped L off at school and then did the return trip which was much kinder on my legs!
Not sure why I don't do this more often. The excuse normally is that L, at eight years old might not be able to manage to walk the hill whereas in actual fact it was ME that was getting left behind and L that kept saying "come on Nan". So - after I get fit, watch this space!
Have a good week
