Happy new year! We had a little snow earlier this month. It started coming down one evening and we thought it would probably melt by morning.
It stayed for a day or so though. Not much snow admittedly but this is the most we’ve had in the two years we have been in Leicester. There was even enough for children to make snowballs. Luckily it melted before it had a chance to turn into ice on the footpaths.
We also got a new car for Christmas!
The bird feeder in the back garden is proving popular, particularly with the family of robins that live in the holly tree. They seem to regard it as their personal pantry and chase the other little birds away. This photo is a few weeks old – the robins now look more like tennis balls with beaks, so we think we are fueling a robin obesity crisis.
The house priorities this year are carpet on the stairs and landings, finishing off the security systems, and taming the back garden.
