I have been OUT !! ......Hail the Hyundai !!

On my way back from the shops......a country road...leading to where I live !! Shortly after this photo...the snow slipped off the roof....on my way back down the track..... home !!.....
More snow this morning....the girls....are inside......!

My morning walk....down the track...to do a recky !!.......

Just before my quest to get to the shops........this afternoon.....

The crows......outside my window.....this morning !!

All hail the Hyundai !!......I have been out today....!!

We were brave and I was running out of essentials.....like bread and milk....so I was determined to brave the gauntlet of the track and see if I could get out.....mind you..the morning I woke up to...wasn't exactly ideal !!

We managed to get out onto the main roads...which weren't much better...than my track in places....but we got there and back in one piece.....I must say this little car really does impress me......we were united in our quest to get to the shops and back...safely.......and we did.....

So I have managed to stock up on the milk and bread...and one or two other items.......so hopefully we will survive, until the big thaw !!....I don;t know when that will be !!

Before I braved my escape, I was once again doing some track and snow clearance....just to give me a good chance of managing to get out......I have had no post.......now there's a surprise........I don't think the postman would be able to get along the road...to me....as there are a couple of little hills and unless you have a 4x4....I don't think you'd get up them....

The snow looks like its going to linger.....my water is frozen today...so just another jobs to do....on the list.......tonight I have.....drudged up the wood...to feed the birds....the snow is really deep.......up there....I don't think I would have got up there with the quad tonight......so hopefully the birds and the wildlife are fed.....for the next couple of days....

When I looked out of my window this morning.....there were loads of Corby Crows...sitting on the fence and feeding outside the window.....well every thing needs a helping hand in this weather.......!!

Sorry to sat this, Jayne, probably doesn't feel like it to you but to us down here it all looks really exciting!

If you can bottle the 'spirit of Zanzibah' Jayne, you'll be on to a winner! and Corby Crows, ...are they crows from Corby, and how do they differ from ordinary crows?

We're out of milk, maybe you could send you Hyundai down here.

Oh Jayne! I'm glad you got out, and your vehicle is great, but that weather looks bad! Yuck!

Barbara@beckbrowalpacas said...

Yes...I will definitely order a couple of crates of 'Spirit of Zanzibar' please...just to stock up for winter!!
