Ice Ice Baby
But I'm not one to complain - as you know - despite my sad expression in this picture on the left.
The family braved the worst of the snow on Saturday night to go and watch a charity show organised by the Girl Of The House's boyfriend and his mates. I stayed tucked up in my bed thank you very much.
When they got home they found the family across the road building an igloo in front of their house. They were STILL building it when we all turned in for the night at half past midnight! It looked like this:
When we got up in the morning it was finished and lots of people wanted their pictures taken with it. It looked like this:

Yesterday, me and the Lady Of The House set off to see how the ducks and the swans were doing at Brook Hollows in the village of Rolleston (we thought we'd share the bread around after visiting the canal ducks last week).
The brook ducks were very pleased to see us. There was a lot of ice spreading out from the bank as you can see:
We were a bit worried about this swan that was sitting on the ice:
But we threw him/her some bread that landed near enough for him/her to get.
His/her mate was a bit more forward.
