I was out this morning walking the dogs. It had snowed again yesterday, again during the night and was still snowing. About 6 to 8 inches of pristine snow wherever I looked. It suddenly struck me that there were no other footprints around and not one kid or parent in sight. The hill and it's paths didn't have a single sledge running, nothing, empty, an invitation that when I was a kid, we would have jumped at. In fact, no kids really to be seen anywhere, except Tesco's and Morrisons. Do all the kids today stay at home playing video games? or do the parents forbid them to go out in the snow in case they hurt themselves doing what kids used to do? It just seemed rather a sad sight to me, all that white stuff waiting to be played in and no takers.
