      Lol, I get it, i thought your comment must have related to a different post, 🙂

      Thank you for the lovely Christmas message though & for liking my header. I took this photo just round the corner from my house 2 years ago when the snow was really heavy. Looks good with the WordPress ‘snow’ falling on it 🙂

          It’s not too cold, south of England so temperature is between 2°C and 30°C on average. Winters are just a bit dark (it gets dark at 4pm for the next few weeks) and normally wet and windy.

          Our weather is very changeable though, which leads to great skies and interesting landscapes.

          We are very lucky, we live around the corner from the river Thames and it is quite beautiful around here. We also live at the confluence of the River Wey and Thames so we have locks and a weir, and historical buildings associated with river transport which are very pretty too.

          Most Decembers are between 0°C and 10°C but we do have strange weather too. Sometimes it’s warm enough for no coat on Christmas Day. Being an Island and living down south and near the river means we don’t get the very cold weather like in Scotland. 2010, when this photo was taken was an exception, the Gulf Stream was more south of us Han normal so we had heavy snow for a few weeks. The children loved it,schools were closed. But it usually doesn’t outstay it’s welcome!!
