so it snowed then .....

 well here comes winter and the snow has started we have had a couple of days of it now so i suppose this will be winter then

luckily both cars are prepared with anti-freeze , screen wash and have been given the once-over ready for the bad weather

so on the way back from a trip out to carlisle and gretna we came back via the back roads and enjoyed the scenery and other stuff
as you can see up our end the back roads dont see the snow ploughs or gritters so it all makes for a very interesting ride out
we got there and we got back so no problems with that then - a good day was had by all....!!

 look at the state of my car

and no i didnt do it - well i sort of did it but it wasnt my fault

it started off as a driving lesson for the oldest daughter and we would use my car as it has a heavy duty clutch in it
she is not old enough to drive as yet but is not far off

so off we went down to a farm track on a friend of ours land - no danger of any other traffic apart from the odd sheep - and more importantly nothing to hit

we would go up and down the track and turn around in the field at each end - no problem
you guessed it - there is one soft spot in the entire field and she found it panicked and got it stuck
yes i had to get it out and now i have it to wash
driving lessons are off for a bit now!!!
