Wot no more snow! Wednesday 11 February

At least no more snow. A gradual thaw today at our Peak District Cottages but the trouble was it got very cold later in the day and it turned very icy. Bits and pieces at home and one cleaner up to turn a couple of cottages around. After lunch went down to Bakewell to stock up on some food! After dinner collected Joanna to go to the WI. Took it carefully although the roads as far as the village hall were fine but we parked near the hall and walked the last few yards. Our guest speaker tonight was Jackie Ellis who lives in Over Haddon and is Sally Mosley’s sister who was also a recent speaker. Jackie spoke about and showed us a number of slides of her travels around the world. One of her pictures won a national prize. We all enjoyed the talk. Made me want to go on holiday again! A slow drive back home to be safe.
