on way home from work today (left early due to weather) came across a focus, it turned a corner to fast and ended on 2 of those plastic yellow ballard things in the centre of the road (where you can walk) all the four wheels off the ground, quite funny, as the bloke who was driving was putting it in first and then reverse to try and get it off.... just wish i took a pic to show you all .....

Snowed quite heavy down here in bexhill/hastings. At first it wasnt laying but then eventually it did set quite thick. I had to drive in it briefly to get home which involves a couple of hills that were a bit dodgey to get up. The worst bit was when i nearly lost it into a parked car, i swear i literlly sh*t myself at that point lol
Lesson learned, shes staying parked until the snow clears.

Woke up this morning to over 4 inches of snow in the night. There's 6+ inches on the ground here now. Looks like I am working from home again snow and the steep hills of Sheffield are a bad mix!
