Did we go to school? Well actually on that occasion we did not, but on a usual winter with a couple of feet of snow we would trudge along in our wellies (shoes safely in our satchels) for a good two miles to school. What softies everyone seems to be these days! Before I sink totally into the stereotypical old granny routine ' ah in my day...etc' Here are some obligatory snow pictures from my garden. And brrr... isnt it cold!!

After all its winter!
All day yesterday people kept coming into the shop and shivering away "ooh its cold" they moaned, of course I had to agree, it is very cold. But after all, it is WINTER. When I was a child it was cold all winter long... not just the odd two or three days we get nowadays. One of the worst winters I remember was in 1963 when I opened the back door to be met by a wall of snow that reached up to the eaves of the house. My father had to dig us out and we were most disappointed to see that the milkman had not called!
