Picture Postcard......

I took this photo about a week ago, this is our village green it looked so pretty and picture postcard.

But on a practical note this weather is a nightmare to most people.  Luckily I managed to get to work  most of the week, but on returning home after a late shift last Friday night I got stuck on our estate road, the snow on the road was still deep and it had turned to icy slush.  Apparently I was not going fast enough to get through it and the car just stopped and stalled.  Trying to move was impossible, the wheels just went into a spin.  It took about six people to push me into the drive, exhausting.....   Is there any sign we are over the worst, I don't believe the weather forecasters anymore.  I didn't get to Harrogate either, but looking forward to a day in York soon, weather permitting !!!

Getting tired of the snow now - it stops me doing what I want to do!

Snow is only ever fun when you've got the time to enjoy it. When it impacts on everyday life its a complete pain.

Lovely scene, but I know you all struggle with the snow over there. We have yet to see a flake - which makes me think lots is on the way for us here in the northeast usa. xox Corrine

Just discovered your blog, nice to come across other bloggers in Northumberland with similar interests. Nothing more frustrating than surviving a long journey home in the snow then getting stuck in sight of your own front door!!!
