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.
