Winter wonderland

More snow fell on Friday, I found myself driving in a blizzard with my 94yr old mother beside me saying ‘we should have stayed home’. It wasn’t snowing when we left, there were a few flakes when we stopped for petrol but then 5 mins later I couldn’t see a thing. The further we got to Wych Cross nursery the worse it became, I wanted to turn round but couldn’t see the parking areas. I knew the Llama Park was coming up so headed for that, skidded into the drive, turned round & headed back out hoping that any car coming toward me would have it’s lights on. We gingerly headed back to Nutley, down the big hill & up into the village but the car in front was stuck, wheels spinning on the frozen snow. Nothing coming so I drove on past him (apologies for not stopping to help) & managed to get back to Uckfield in one piece where it was snowing less. Poor mum was a bit shaken but we’d made it. It took about an hour & half to drive from Uckfield to Ringmer but hey ho I was safe & the car was fine. We never did get our mulled wine or mince pies but there’s always next year!

  1. So glad that you are both safe. Keep warm.

  2. Hi Joan – just to say, I love the photo of you feeding Roger – bless you both. If you are still awake at Midnight on Christams Eve, don’t forget to pop out and see if he is kneeling, like the Thomas Hardy poem ( even though he is not quite the right beast!) – http://quotations.about.com/cs/poemlyrics/a/The_Oxen.htm

    Happy Christmas and Love, Susanne

    PS So glad you and your Mum made it safely back in the blizzard last Friday.
