This is the view we woke up to yesterday morning, about eight inches of snow. We knew it was on its way, but it hadn't started snowing when we went to bed. It looks so pretty, but causes so much chaos. Schools close, trains stop, airports close, roads come to a standstill. Gritting lorries have been out, but they don't come up on to little side roads like ours.
Christopher spent some time clearing some areas so that we can put food down for the birds; even the rooks and magpies have been trying to balance on the feeders, to no avail. Rosie spent the day inside with her legs crossed!
We went out for a walk down to the village shop in the late morning and although it was cold it was easy to walk in as it hasn't been compacted yet.
(That's me, looking like Michelin Man with all the layers I had on!)
I did think of doing lots of sewing, but first had to do the housework after all the Christmas decorations had been put away. In the afternoon I finished a little hanging for my niece for her birthday, and made a couple of cushion covers - photographs still to come.
