So the country grinds to a halt… again! It really is beyond me how much we suffer with roads/transport etc after a little bit of snow. I mean, there are many countries who still manage to run perfectly normal despite practically being covered in snow for months at a time – why is it so difficult here? Does this happen in winter in Stockholm? I don’t think so.

I managed to brave the weather and made it to within 10 miles of Guildford before having to turn back – just about every road into Guildford is blocked from either snow or accidents. Anyway, I’ve made it instead to Basingstoke – but by the looks of it I risk being snowed in here too! Now where did I put those tennis racket shoes of mine….
