Went to see my nephew, Jamie, this weekend and celebrate my Dad’s birthday. Oxford has about as much snow as we do in Basingstoke but the roads were clear enough so the journey was no problem. We took Jamie out on the sledge which he was somewhat reluctant to get on at first. Naturally, I led the way although I’ve put on a little weight since my Dad last pulled me along. No, it was the rusty runners that stopped it… honest! After a while, Jamie got into the whole sledging thing and despite the absence of slopage in Chalgrove, he seemed to get right into it.
