Away and back...

We have just come back from a weekend away with DS, DDiL and the Grand Dogs - lovely. DS was celebrating his birthday present from earlier this year with a tootle around on one of these:
DDiL decided to join him and they rode around for about 40 minutes or so. We took lots of photographs and tried to keep warm in the very cold, snowy, rainy and windy day!


Boy, where they live, did they have cold weather although the coldest night was forecast for Monday for them, we came home on that day. Mind you, despite having our heating coming on whilst away, for short periods to keep the chill off our house, it was just 11C inside, when we arrived home.

We took a slightly different way back from them, as the hills would have been too risky, and missed our turning which made it interesting to say the least. Most roads were drivable but nearly everyone was driving very carefully, even on the motorways (50 mph rather than 70 mph). What is normally a 3 hour 15 minute journey home, took just a tad over 5 hours, including a short stop for lunch.

The house still isn't fully up to our normal temperature (18C) and so far, we haven't been able to use our chocolate nut spread, as even in the kitchen, near the boiler, it is still solid!

Washing to catch up on, massage to have, soup to make, presents to wrap and I still haven't organised anything for Christmas, in the house or food department. Got things, just need to get baking and decorating, rocking and rolling!

  2. Roads have been dreadful. It’s good to be safely home. If you do some Christmas baking your house will warm up nicely :) the

    1. No rush yet as we don’t have guests until the New Year.
