Winter at last...swirling, great feathers of flakes blanketed all before it yesterday morning.
Our littlest chap went to school on a sledge and snowmen were built on the playing fields.
After the school drop off I tried in vain to get into the city but failed. Gridlock and snow heaving down meant nothing moved.
So I turned tail, headed home and thanks to modern technology cosied into work at the desk in our bedroom and watched my view grow more magnificet by the minute.
And I had some lovely company. The hedgerow was filled with finches and tits, siskins, redpolls and buntings.
And when the east wind blows and brings us snow, it brings a flock of fieldfares our way too. Every now and again they took off and flew in formation around the valley, before heading down onto our decking for apples and fat pellets.
My perfect sort of day in the office!
