Looking at the weather across much of England this weekend, we were glad to be on a visit to the grandchildren (and their parents, of course) in Oslo. The cold is crisp and deep and even at minus 10 fairly tolerable, especially with wool against the skin down to the toes.

It turned out to be party day today – an 8 year old having his class and their families for fun on the snow and ice. Everybody, Norwegian style, brought their frankfurters to cook on the BBQ and eat in potato pancake wraps. So we all went along, except for 6 year old Sam, whose friend was having a pony-riding party – games in the saddle for all the kids, even those who'd never been in one before.

Norwegians really know how to do snow!
