Christmas day has been and most of the UK is bathed in snow, here in the North we have had snow for over a week now, and sub zero temperatures. It was lovely waking up on Christmas morning to see it still around.. The sun shone all day with bright blue skies. We went out in the morning, deciding not to take the car out, instead opting for a short walk down by the old church and across the snowy covered fields. It was mighty cold but we soon warmed up, it took about an hour just long enough to work up an appetite for lunch.
