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….

Mud glorious mud!

Yesterday’s game at Shelford was one of the muddiest games I’ve played in a long time. With ice-y slush from the snow overnight still covering the shady areas of the pitch and a cold wind blowing right across, I was pleased to have my trusty thermal on. Although, running out for the start, the sudden and freezing rain really added to the atmosphere and from the off the sense of impending and inevitable mud covering was soon satisfied! There was a lot of sliding and slipping about and the uneven pitch didn’t help – running up hill through wet mud is a skill I’m yet to master (maybe I could learn something from cross-country skiing?)

However, the choice to go up the hill in the first was genius as we rumbled on down the hill in the second, scoring 2 tries and the Olney forwards giving a masterclass in scrummaging. I particularly enjoyed the ref trying to tell our props to ease off the pressure and stop pushing! Brilliant!
