Taking the snow with us

This is our sunny holiday home in France... About four inches of snow fell one afternoon, at a time of year when we'd normally be expecting blossom and lunching outside. Mr B had popped out to a DIY store, and ended up taking 3 and a half hours to drive the 6 miles home - he was fine but none of the other drivers seemed convinced that moving in snow was sensible.

We went sledging (well, placky bagging) the next day off the back of the swimming pool. Mum was furious - she arrived that day for a long awaited holiday in the sunshine. I think it was the first snow Katherine had ever played in.
