Saturday in The Midlands

[Saturday 19th December]
Got the train in the morning from St. Pancras to the new East Midlands Parkway station, as we'd planned to visit Mum this weekend. Were treated to some rather nice views of snowy landscapes on the way up.
After a spot of lunch, Chie and I decided to head out for a walk in the afternoon. We walked to a couple of the villages/hamlets neighbouring the village where Mum lives. Again more snowy landscapes to take in, which was rather nice. On the way back we popped in to The Cross Keys for a quick pint, the pub my parents ran for the first few years after I was born. It's still rather a nice pub, and it was very comforting to be back there.
In the evening, Mum made a sort of Indian feast for dinner. She'd apparently been cooking curries for it all week. I particularly enjoyed the pickle tray at the start, including some of Mum's excellent home made chutneys.
