Christmas in Chester 2010

It is not very often that the Dee freezes


but this Christmas day the ducks and swans slithered on a new unwelcome thoroughfare.


People, dispelled from the streets as if by the cold,


took to the hills with sleds, outside the walls.


And we walked back, counting footsteps


to my favourite present.

Wow, really? Ellesmere Port is so close! And yes, it's well worth walking the walls. I am keeping my sheep cozy for special tea occasions. I think it is important to eke out my pleasures :-)

What a cozy sheep! I believe you must have stolen it from Genius Gump.
