This snow business is getting a little silly now. I’m glad it didn’t all fall in one go, it would have been quite deep and tricky, but in dribs and drabs with a mix of thaw, hard frost, rain, hail, snow again, it’s just getting out of hand. Ciara and I had planned to walk everyday of the holidays, they're back to school on Thursday, (Thursday, I ask you, what’s that all about?!) and we’ve been for one stroll together and I walked home from Tesco, alone. I suppose the children did go sledging a couple of times and out to build snowmen etc., but Ciara’s ‘cuddle’ is beginning to take over. We need to take ‘cuddle’ in hand and soon!
I don’t think I can remember conditions quite like this, I really should invest in some sort of crampons. The cold itself wouldn’t put me off walking for so long, it’s the absolute knowledge that I would not stay upright beyond the doorstep and even that’s a bit tricky. Still, at least I’m quite reasonably padded at the moment, that should lend protection…
I’ve got to get out there.
