We drove past Silbury Hill. Silbury Hill is an artificial chalk mound near Avebury in the English county of Wiltshire. It is part of the Stonehenge, Avebury and Associated Sites UNESCO World Heritage Site. It is the tallest prehistoric human-made mound in Europe and one of the largest in the world; it is similar in size to some of the smaller Egyptian Pyramids of the Giza Necropolis. Its original purpose however, is still highly debated, though various suggestions have been put forward.
Arrival at my father-in-law's; there was certainly less snow here than at our own house.
and at the pub where we had booked lunch - hopefully not at the tables in the garden!!
My father-in-law and myself
and with Nigel. My father-in-law is quite an amazing man who is due to turn 90 early next year.
Looking across the countryside on the drive home. We did not hang around for too long after having had an excellent lunch, and too much to eat! We were both feeling like it was time to get home and fall back into bed once more; we only surfaced at mid-day the following day!! We are both now on the slow road to recovery and I have to say we are more than grateful Nigel is off work until the New Year.
