Hello folks! Glad to see everyone's had a lovely Christmas!
We're home a day early as MIL had heavy snow last night - we were out visiting friends about 8 miles away, and only just got home in the blizzard conditions. This morning niece was out building snowmen and great fun was had but we thought we'd better make tracks (geddit? ) in case things got worse rather than better, so packed our bags and set off for home, only to find that 6 miles from MIL there'd been no snow at all.
We went past the turning to Nut's village, and t didn't look as if they'd had any, and that's only a couple of villages away from MIL!!!
And did anyone watching the lunchtime news see someone being interviewed from the Peak District Rescue Team (or whatever it was called) - their name was Ed. It wasn't our Edd was it?
Anyway, we're home safe and sound - we called in at a farm shop and picked up a free range chicken for tomorrow and OH has unpacked the car and I've turned the heating on and the fire is blazing and the house is warming up.
One mini crisis was that my mobile died on Christmas Day - it had been playing up and then immersing it (accidentally) in water just about finished it off. So anyone who has my mobile number, there's no point in using it at the moment! Hopefully I'll be able to get a new one which will take the old SIM card
