This weekend our lush green fields, sprawling urban cities and quaint little English towns were all graced with a smattering of snow, a white blanket caressing the landscape and bringing the mundane and the ordinary to a grinding halt. For some, this was a hindrance, for others, and I hope this includes you, a blessing. (I know the Surrey school kids were particularly pleased that the snow had finally come...) Despite the snow being a tad late for a white Christmas, it certainly didn't stop me racing up to the common with my friends - sledges in tow and grins on our faces - for some chilly winter larks. And although this scuppered any plans of travel for this little explorer, the snow was definitely a welcomed opportunity to kick back, relax, and have a bit of fun! Here are a few photos from my weekend antics:

|Frozen wetsuits, boots and gloves on our washing line from our latest surf trip...might need to defrost them before the next!|
|Bunting from the summer got a wintry make-over.|
|Footprints in the snow.|

How have you been enjoying the weather? Day off or a right nuisance? Let me know what you've been up to!
