There I was all geared up to work on the front garden, but nature had other ideas.
Instead, we went for a walk, starting with the local woods.
We got a bit lost, but it's only a small wood and it was really beautiful, and we eventually got out by balancing on a log over a little stream.
Venturing out on to the estate, it seemed as if everyone was out enjoying the snow. There was a lot of sledging down the hill, snowball fights and some superb snowmen.
I was planning on making one myself, but there was already so many, and they were so good that instead I just sat in the window seat admiring the snow.
