time out

Goodness, what fun and games we've been having in Brissle. We had a bit of snow last week, the first time in ages that it's happened here. So we made the most of it; some people gamely walked for miles through the snow to get to work, while the rest skived off and had fun. The hillier parts of Bristol became extremely slippery and were closed to traffic, which meant that we could walk in the road, and very nice it was too, ...

...although plenty of drivers ignored the notices. They were almost certainly Very Important People Going Somewhere Vital, because they looked so serious and stern in a "get out of my way, foolish pedestrian" sort of way.



..here's one, being overtaken by some cyclists...

...and, since the schools were closed, this is what we got up to...

Oh well, all good things come to an end. The snow turned to slush, then melted away; I dug out the Trav, and started it up... the electrics misbehaved something chronic, until I'd given it a good spraying with WD40 and a good long run.


..and look! Snowdrops! With snow!


...so there we are. What I Did On My Holidays.
