fabulous snow…

As with most of the country we’ve enjoyed a fair amount of snow this week.

Made it into work on Monday – we’re lucky here that the MK grid roads clear fairly quickly.  It was only the last turn into the car park where I discovered going straight was the only option – turning the steering wheel had none of the usual directional effect you would normally expect.   This snowman was started by some young boy who looked quite tired out after rolling the body, so when he left we finished it off with a head and leaf bikini, much to the boys surprise on his return! Magic!

Then this morning theres a fresh 5 inches both on my car and all over the garden –  which the dog enjoyed immensely. So as the office is closed today, I’m going to make the most of the opportunity to get the wellies on a enjoy a walk in the fresh air and make the most of my favourite sound – the crunch of soft snow underfoot.

Also best use the time wisely to get going on my revision for my first CIM exam next month….

Finally the day came around (had to book in advance you see) and off we went on a slightly cloudy day to the home of British Racing, Silverstone.

It was eerily quite as we drove all the way around the service road around the outside of the main circuit, behind the grandstands, following the curves of Stowe corner and down alongside the Hanger Straight, glimpsing the track briefly now and then, then over the bridge to the experience centre.

Yes there was lots of people (mostly blokes for the experience days with the wives/girlfriends/mums like me getting ready with the camera) and it was a bit of an in-out-off-you-go affair but it was well worth it just to see the smile on my mans face when he got out of the Ferrari 360 he’d just driven 3 laps in around Silverstone.
