It was a lovely sunny winter day so we went for a car ride. That’s Hanningfield Reservoir in Essex. It was closed, naturally, so we just parked by the roadside to enjoy the water fowl and the first snowdrops. On the way back we spotted a Nero in Brentwood and had to stop for hot chocolates. Ages since I last had a takeaway hot drink, it tasted great and felt amazing to be out and about.
