We started our walk at Mount St Bernard Abbey, which looked stunning in the snow. I didn't know there was an abbey so close to Loughborough, but it's off the back roads so it's quite secluded.
We made our way down the hill to the reservoir. Citizens of Loughborough, here is where your drinking and bath water comes from.

I tried recording it on my camera, and although it's mostly knee the sounds are pretty funny. Paul is sat behind me, and I'm doing the steering - as far as it's possible to do so at that speed!
We made our way back up the hill to where we'd left the car, stopping for a few snowball fights, snow angel making, and to hunt for Paul's coffee flask which had dropped out of his pocket somewhere. We didn't find it, but instead discovered this mouse, springing over the snow in search of winter morsels.
I refuse to complain about snow. For all its inconveniences we get it so rarely in Britain that it's worth making the most of and enjoying it as much as possible while it's here. We certainly did that!
