It's all gone a bit Joni Mitchell...

So I've been cursing my English gang for banging on about Spring and daffodils while it's still snowing away like buggery here. However, it turns out there are some benefits to all this, namely skating on an actual river! (Ok, it's a lake but it's long and twisty and very river-like.) So yeah I'm still freezing my proverbials off but, seriously, this.
