i rely on a stick to help my balance.
yesterday was the first time i’d used it in snow.
it was a 50 yard hobble to the local butchers which was fine but once inside the shop my stick slid.
luckily i know that shop very well and disaster was averted.
20 yards further the greengrocers and my stick did it again.
their was a lump of snow stuck at the bottom of it.
so beware of walking sticks and snow!
i need to go out again today for a birthday card for my youngest son who is 29 tomorrow.
this brings me to my major worry that he will be in traffic on the M62 - he’s a good driver and has a 4 x 4 but still a worry.
anyway that goes with the territory of being a mum.
be careful out there!
