We went out to play!



Woo Hoo! We had a snow day today, and we all went out to play! The children stayed home from school, and even Steve took a day off, and we spent nearly all day out having fun. It was a long tramp up the hill to the farm to feed the ponies, and I had to bucket water out from the house as all outside taps were frozen, but we took the sledge and some chocolate and it was great. Afterwards, we continued on up over the top of Meldon. The snow was pristine and virgin, and everyone had a go on the sledge, despite being hampered by Magpie bouncing along in front of it! Eventually we made our way home, stopping off at a neighbouring farm on the way for a pot of tea, and a chance to dry out our gloves on the rayburn. If only all days could be as carefree!

Gorgeous photos, LOVE the raven!
I just saw in our paper today all the snow that fell in London. Seems like it shut the place down.

We went to a horse show over the weekend and I saw a stocky little Dartmoor there and thought of you. He was the only one and had everyone's attention.

It's snowing here tonight...maybe we can have a play day tomorrow.

Lucky, lucky ducks!! How I wish we could have some snow soon! Actually, it is snowing at the moment....but not the kind to stick and stay, I'm afraid. Have Fun!!
