Proper winter has finally arrived in England.
Over the weekend the warmish wet weather that has been with us more or less constantly since the early autumn has been replaced by clear skies, cold, crisp air, frozen puddles and ponds, and frosty grass.
Love it! Of course, when there is ice on the road I have to be careful, checking for traffic before pulling into the middle of the road to go around it. I know the roads very well, but don't want to get too intimate with them :-)
Most of England also had a dose of snow at the weekend too! It worked its way south, reaching London and the counties to the north and west of Kent, but we had nothing.
We like a bit of snow!
Custard loves snow, and will roll in it, making doggy angels.
Frou Frou hates it, though, as she gets it stuck to the fur around her feet and between her toes. This does not amuse her, and means that she ends up being carried home, which is not an easy task given that she is rather heavy for a small dog and we still have 2 other dogs on leads! If we do get some snow here I suspect that there will be 2 walks. One for Frou Frou and Spot (who is rather attached to his bed that is next to a radiator) and one for Custard. He likes to get out and about, regardless of the weather!
