|Me, bundled up under many layers, with Whiskers|
Although today was the darkest and coldest of my long weekend off work, we took the girls out to Cod Beck Reservoir at Osmotherley, one of our favourite haunts as the girls love it and it's only a few miles from home.
When we embarked from the car it was very overcast and drizzling. It seemed cold but we assumed that when we got moving we'd soon warm up. We were wrong. It was absolutely freezing ! The wind chill factor must have been several degrees below zero and by the time we had reached the end of our walk our hands were white and numb !
But, the girls had a fantastic time racing through piles of mud and swimming in the reservoir. We struggled to keep Whiskers out of the water despite the freezing temperatures. She's such a water baby :)

|This muddy hidey-hole is one of the girls' favourite places|
|Interesting how the moss has grown around this tree trunk|
|A very windswept Whiskers !|
|Love this picture of Lovely Hubby making a face at Whiskers !!|
After our walk we went to one of our favourite pubs to warm up and have some lunch. I had fish and chips and Lovely Hubby had home-made corned beef pie which was made with shortcrust pastry - it looked delicious and made me think I might have a go myself. Normally we make corned beef pie with mash on top.
Back to work tomorrow but it's only three days - how hard can it
Have a great week all x
