Thank goodness it wasn't like this yesterday. Yeah, I know it's not really all that snowy by other peoples standards but it's bound to cause us English type folk a few problems - very pretty though.
Just came back yesterday from a lovely weekend with my girlfriend down at Center Parcs, Sherwood Forest. We stayed in villa 199 which I'd recommened to any couple wanting a fairly quiet time away, but close to most of the main attractions not to need hiking boots. One highlight would have to be the wildlife found just outside the villa's patio doors, including grey squirrels, rabbits, mallard ducks, moorhens, blue, longtailed and great tits, chaffinches and even a little goldcrest - fantastic! It was so great to have all that wild(ish) life outside our door, though we could have done without the scary mute swan pair which came right up to the glass of the patio and started knocking on the glass with their bills.
Really looking forward to going again, though we'll probably try the one up in Whinfell Forest, Cumbria next time just to see our elusive native red squirrels.
