It's Freezing, brrr !!!!!!!

Arrived at Gatwick Airport in the early morning of 16th December and was greeted with wet gloomy wearther.  Well, this is England -what else is new!  Picked up our car rental at the airport and drove up towards Leicester.
Driving towards Leicester
Made a stop in Oxford
At the natural history museum in Oxford University (will update the name later, can't remember it now)
It started snowing by the time we arrived in Leicester,
Snow started to fall in the evening
... and woke up to this the next morning.
Having breakfast before heading off to Nottingham
With Pat Hallam of Roseground
From Nottingham, we drove further north to Leeds
At the steps of the Parkinson Building, Leeds University, where I studied more than 30 years ago.
Arrived back in Leicester in the  evening.  Tomorrow is another day.


  1. You have certainly "hit the ground running" - covering a lot of miles since arriving.What did you buy from Roseground???
    Enjoy your trip!

  2. Only a small smattering of snow here at the moment but it's snowing gently. Doubt it will amount to much in my neck of the woods. DO hope to meet you on Tuesday.

  3. Thank you for the pics and the commentary.

    Keep them coming :)

  4. oh my goodness! How exciting! I hope to go to Uk one day! Have fun

  5. That is so lovely, Jon!

    Thank you very much for bringing us along for the ride ;-)

  6. Hi Jon,
    Welcome to England, every thing stops for snow, I am surprised you got so far north as they have had so much snow over the last couple of weeks, today we have snow in somerset and yes it is very cold. I hope you enjoy your visit to England, I hope you brought a lot of thick clothing with you as you are going to need it.
    take care and keep warm

  7. Oh to be in England as once I was.


Thank you leaving comments. I really appreciate it
