Snowy days

As the snow begins to thaw and the Beast from the East retreats, I'm looking back on a wonderfully snowy, cold week in Durham.  It all began last Tuesday, with a bit of light snow, and my kiddies were really excited to pull their wellies on and walk to school through the snow!  Then, Wednesday happened and a ton of snow fell all around the North East, closing our schools and pretty much all other schools in the area!  School was closed for three days, we were snowed in, so we decided to make the most of it, get the sledge out and walk along to Observatory Hill which overlooks Durham.  Its a well-known sledging spot in Durham, and with good reason, an epic slope with brilliant views across to the Cathedral...much fun was had by all!
