Back in early November, as the cold weather approached, we were told that there would be snow in the morning and it would all melt by the afternoon.  But that has not been the case, as you may have heard; “in northern France, the authorities placed a number of areas on the second-highest state of alert.” BBC News

There has been a full blanket of snow out in the countryside for at least the past two weeks. Out at the Vimy Memorial it’s been a winter wonderland with all the trees completely covered in ice and snow.

Now it’s almost Christmas, we have our Christmas tree set up and the duck is in the icebox ready for our little feast for two tomorrow night.
