Snow was great when you were a kid; it fell, you had time off school - sorted. Problem is when it falls now you have to drive in it, live with it and more importantly put up with it!
I can honestly say when I woke up this morning to see the snow was in retreat I was over the moon. The horses can go out and eat and I can drive to work without the worry of sliding into a ditch! This has been a real concern as gritters around Eversholt seem to have gone the same way of Police in the village, eg they've vanished!
Ridgemont Hill - mmm that's nice when it's icy.
One thing that hasn't vanished - my chest infection/cough - very bored of it now!
