Our young neighbours were out last last night [11pm] building snowmen. We saw their creations as we walked to church this morning.
Our intrepid congregation donned boots and warm clothing, and grabbed their sledges and walking poles – and we had a good congregation – although some from the villages further out didn’t make it. Top marks to David the organist for trudging 5 miles across the snowy fields to be there!
We had a really great service. Walked home with neighbour Annabel, who said they’d had a good time at the Parish Church too.
Missing the girls, who were around last year when we made Laurence, I decided no 11 needed a snowman too. Having checked the lunch was cooking OK I stomped outside in my boots and made a small snowman. As yet anonymous – he’s borrowed Bob’s Indiana Jones Hat, so I may call him Harrison!
Bob came outside briefly to take photographs of the Working Girl [which is another of my favourite Harrison Ford films]
When I came back inside, there was this gorgeous hot drink waiting for me! If you like ginger, I can really recommend this Rochester Dark Ginger, from Julian Graves Stores. It is non-alcoholic, and tastes wonderful diluted with hot water.
The website says “The finest Jamaican Ginger and pure cane sugar are at the heart of a generations old Jamaican recipe for a powerful potent Ginger drink that many find hard to believe is non-alcoholic.” [It is usually £3.99, but we got ours on offer in December]
We are having a service tonight – however many turn up!
