It felt a very peculiar week, to be honest. I had Tuesday and Wednesday away from the office, and had always planned to spend Thursday working from home, catching up on the detail from those tow days. So, I woke up on Thursday morning to a blanket of snow, our first of this winter 'campaign'. The house was warm, and though I had not in fact planned to go out, suddenly I felt 'snowed in' and isolated. This of course was not true, especially as the delivery drivers with our new bathroom managed to make it through. Strange how your external world reflects on your internal one, though. The one upside was that I decided to take a mid-day run in the snow and light, rather than in the evening - what fun, the crispy whiteness through Ampfield wood, everything silent, traffic free and softened by the snowfall. I was also delighted to find that my trail shoes, as well as providing good grip, were indeed watertight as promised, so I arrived home still with toasty toes! All in all an odd feeling.
I haven't got a video recorded as yet - so I am going to post this up now, and I will add one over the next few days as time allows. Plenty of good wines, though!
