A White Christmas

It's been the first Christmas I've spent in the UK since 2004 (we were in Boston in 2005 and in Cannes every year since then) and has certainly been a chilly one. Papa and I were supposed to go on a run through Christchurch Meadow this morning but he wasn't feeling well and, in any case, we discovered when we went for a walk later on most of the gates into the meadow were locked.

Despite the bright sunshine, there weren't very many fellow walkers but the ducks and geese were very pleased to see us. Not being Cannes also meant not being forced to swim in cold waters on Christmas Day -- the Cherwell was, in any case, frozen over. In all the excitement, I forgot to do a Christmas Day leap, though. Error.
