It's time for me to take my Christmas break and to leave you with some uncharacteristically snowy scenes for the time of year. Already there's talk of this being the coldest December for a century.
These pictures are of the woodland and public footpath which runs alongside our house. Only a few minor clues gives evidence that 'civilisation' is nearby. We didn't make it up north as planned for our pre-Christmas trip to Leeds and are hoping that we can get up to Birmingham Botanical Gardens tomorrow to meet up with everyone there instead. We're also hoping to get down to Poole on Friday to pick up NAH's aunt who's coming to stay with us for the Christmas period.
Emergency supplies have been gathered in and then some. Though if we do run out, it looks like we do have an alternative within walking distance if we're really desperate ;)
A Merry Christmas to you all (or Happy Holidays if you prefer) and I'll be back in the New Year :)
