We’ve been confined to the car for the school run/activities/classes for the last two months. And it’s not just the kids that have been going a bit stir crazy!
But over the last couple of weeks, with the help of some bright and milder days, the snow and ice on the pavements has all but disappeared. So despite this week seeing a return of the sub-zero temperatures*, I was determined to get out for a walk…
The wee girl has a toddler class on a Thursday morning which is only a ten minute walk for us. So, out came the stroller, we wrapped up and off we set. A brisk walk there with the wee girl cosy in her buggy (running late as usual!) was followed by a rather chilly stroll home.
Freedom, and clear pavements, are good though :)
Bright days result in mini thaws which then freeze over night, so there are still patches of ice to investigate…
And, little walls are always fun to climb/walk along!
It was a short walk, but hopefully the first of many. Simply being able to navigate the pavements again is fabulous, hopefully we will see some more milder weather soon (please!) so that we can get out and about in our usual fashion. And, taking photos without freezing my fingers off would be good too…
Getting some fresh air and exercise was much needed, and much appreciated. This smiling face says it all really!
[*Yup, it’s still below freezing and we have snow forecast for tomorrow. And yes, that would be the first day of Spring.]
