We awoke to find that it had snowed. When we peered around the curtains, flakes were still falling but by the time I stirred myself to action, the fall had ceased and a timid thaw was in progress.
This is a view from our back door across what I call the Nature Reserve otherwise known as the back garden.
This is the pretty view. In contrast, the main road in front of the house has already been swept clear by the wheels of vehicles and the feet of passers-by, though untrodden corners remain covered with a layer of whiteness.
It has not been this cold for a long time and we have had the heating on for longer periods than usual. Tigger has been unwell and stayed at home yesterday and today. Now that she is on the mend we can feel more cheerful and enjoy being at home together in the warm.
