Trip to the UK – Part 3

It was still freezing cold, but we refused to be couped up indoors – I only had a week and I wanted to get out and about with the kids as much as possible.

We went off to the duck ponds for a wander around – there was still a little bit of snow around and the lakes were still frozen several cm thick – probably more in the middle


The next day was a little warmer again, so we went round to my sister’s again so the kids could play in the park with their cousins.  When I say warmer, it was only a degree or two above freezing, which to my Australian acclimatised blood, is virtually absolute zero, especially as the wind was blowing a bit.

Still, the kids had loads of fun!

We kinda chilled out after this and pretty soon, the kids were wiped out and settled down to watch The Smurfs before dinner.

Next up – Penshurst Place

  1. Hi,
    Great photos. I don’t think I would be able to handle the cold, I would be huddled under a blanket I’m sure. 😀
