Let it snow, let it snow, let it snow
We have finally caught up with the rest of the country and early on Thursday morning it snowed in Exeter. Very exciting since we'd already decided to take the day off to buy a Christmas tree, decorate it and get ready for travelling up to Preston on Friday.
We were lucky to get a tree because B&Q had shut their outdoor area where they kept the trees because it was so slippery with snow and ice. Thankfully a very kind man let us go and choose a tree, otherwise we would have had to travel much further and pay more for the tree.
After we'd got the tree in place we decided to go for a walk in the snow. We went to Stoke Woods, just North of Exeter.
The view from nearby Duryard Valley Park:
One for GB - cows wishing they were in New Zealand?!:
William slept in until nearly 3pm, but we finally managed to get him out in the snow for a whole 3 minutes before he went back to bed.
