Essex or St. Moritz?
All the Essex schools were closed on Tuesday, Why? Not enough staff could get in or perhaps the heating had broken down? I can’t remember ever missing school when the weather was bad, but then it was a long time ago!! However we got called in for child care, and decided to take them to South Weald Park, where the snow lay deep and soft and the gentle slopes made ideal toboggan runs.
You can see the overview of the park this shot is taken from the site of the old house which was taken down in the 1950s to avoid paying death duties! This is all that remains and is the entrance to the house with a staircase up either side great fun to play there at any time of the year! as you can see quite a good slope which got quite fast, and if you look carefully you can see Rory’s blood soaked jacket but not enough damage to stop the fun!
visitors and carrots being handed out. Now what I like about this picture is the way the light is reflected in the ice, the ducks are out of focus but who cares by the time Live Writer has finished with my pictures you won’t even notice!
Two take a tumble
And now heading for McD’s Honestly a Big Mac tastes quite nice when you are hungry
I hope you all have enjoyed the snow as much as we have but I am glad to say the schools are open today!
I got caught by a speed camera just before Christmas and have to attend a Speed Awareness Course this afternoon, watch this space and I will tell you all abut it!!
