My children have been very disappointed that Kendal seemed to be the only place in the UK without enough snow to use their sledges. They had been rescued from the grandparents' garage but had been sitting around doing nothing..
Then yesterday it finally started to snow and it didn't stop for over 12 hours so we had to stay at the grandparents' house:
Then we managed to get back across town and into the field behind our house:
We are so lucky to have just enough of a slope for a sledging session without too long a walk from the house. Normally this field is full of dog walkers but today it was mostly children with their parents having a great time whizzing down the hill:
There can't be too many places to sledge where you have an audience of sheep to watch you coming down the hill:
The children and I had a great time and my son even photographed me coming down on his sledge:
