On Monday, a public holiday here, my parents came over and we all went for a walk around the reservoir.
We discovered that it was frozen all over except for a small area in the centre where all the birds were paddling.
Everyone wanted a turn throwing in stones in an attempt to crack the ice.
Hubby threw small stones across the ice and they made a wonderful woowoo sound as they slid over the ice, very eerie.
We soon had to get moving again to keep warm
Grandad got very cold so Kiki said that she would help him to warm up by holding his hand. Walking behind them I overheard her turn to Grandad and say "Grandad, we're best friends" :)
To warm up, as soon as we got home we lit a fire and ate Christmas pudding and warm custard hmmm perfect.
