Winter wonderland

Duck trails in the slush
Vicarage Road, Marsworth

So the snow actually arrived over night, the forecast has been saying snow for a while and then it never materialised. John cleared the snow off the solar panels and they actually soaked up some dullness to top up the batteries. This afternoon we took a stroll up the first few Marsworth locks to the reservoirs, which was lovely. Our stretch of canal isn’t frozen (yet), just a bit slushy, but my sister reports it is in Kings Langley though.

We’ve both had a touch of flu for over a week now, just when you think you’re better then it all comes back worse than before, typical of the flu virus.

Last week we spent a few days with Heather & Jason up north (on the train). The kids were thrilled when we surprised them and picked them up from after school club/nursery. We all had a lovely meal in the amazingly refurbished Cock & Bottle pub in Tarleton. The main reason for our trip was to attend Magnus’ first nativity at school, however, along with us he was unwell & spent a duvet day with us and had to miss the first performance. His teacher messaged Heather & suggested he go in to school for the morning performance the next day, which he did. We had lunch with Colin & Carole from the Wool Boat who we spent most of last year cruising with. This was our second trip to the 
Cock & Bottle.
