March again . .


Well March is here and so will be looking for the mad March hare.What terrible weather we have been having, Right now not to bad in the Bristol area but who knows what the next day of to will bring,  I think most of the country seems to be suffering , and some other countries are having bad weather as well.  I hope that the weather where you are is not to bad, Stay warm and wrap up if you have to go out, 

Had a lovely few days in Oxford with a good friend, It was very cold but at least dry and we walked a lot and  here  are a few pictures for you to see.
