Just for your peace of mind I can report that a big chunk of the Cotswolds was huge fun today. Worked our way from Marlow to the Salt Way then, before going through the farm, side-stepped to go up through the Guitings. Nice views from Dover's Hill, enjoyed a picnic just off Buckle Street, near the top of Fish Hill. Left the Cotswolds after Chipping Norton, a little bit of the A361 then south on the B4022, followed closely by the B4027 and A40 to Stockcross. No in-car arguments, what could be better!

You mean you and Hanna have in-car contretemps? Surely not! Which car did you take?

And even more fun today with a good 2-3 inches of snow in our neck of the woods overnight. OH even reported an abandoned snow plough blocking one road on her way to work in Bath this morning. I just pity the 4000 people locally without power.

Never mind, I just need to finish off some work, then out to play :)

What are your thoughts about it? I've been wondering if it'd be sensible to get one of those as a graduation present to myself when I graduate - in about 2 and a half years time. Prices should have lowered enough on the second hand market that I could justify getting one.
