More snow! – 10th February 2012

Overnight we had another couple of inches of snow, following on from that which arrived at the weekend.  Fortunately this coincided with the first of three days holiday from work.

The girls’ schools were both open and we were able to make it there without too many problems – apart from a frantic return trip home to pick up Rebekah’s bag!

Once the school run was out-of-the-way we decided to pop into town, heading through Kidwells Park to check out the snow, on the way.

The working day must go on

After we’d had a look in the shops, we decided to head over to Windsor.

While we were outside the castle, we heard rumours that the Changing of the Guard was due to take place imminently, so decided to hang around in the chilly air to watch.

After we had been into a few shops and enjoyed a lunch in Marks and Spencer, we decided to head home.

On the way we popped in briefly to see Grandma’s headstone, which is finally in place and also to see the daffodils in the snow.

It was good be able to escape from work for a day or two and made better with the unexpected treat of more snow.
