Yesterday we woke to the snow so thought the best start was to head to Nailsworth for breakfast. We wrapped up warm and headed down the hill. The kids sledged down, so magical watching them pile on down the footpath. We bought another sledge from Brutons, always an exhilarating feeling to buy a sledge on a snowy day. A hearty breakfast, a first for all of us to have a Hobbs House breakfast together. We then got our supplies for the wasailers and headed up the hill, with one sledge designated the cider sledge.
Then home to a blissful afternoon in the kitchen, I baked a cake and filled it with some cranberry jam I had made and buttercream. In the evening we were joined by lots of friends and neighbors, where we drunk mulled cider and shared curry. Once past the nafness of a bring and share curry evening it's an amazing delicious way to feed the masses. I just had to cook far too much rice. Then the wasailers came singing and we fed them the amazing trethowans dairy toasties and mince pies. (http://www.trethowansdairy.co.uk/Trethowans_Dairy_Shop/RACLETTE_%26_TOASTIES.html)
