This may not seem the most obvious choice for a prompt of ‘Winter sports’ but due to a lack of wintry weather (thunder and hail don’t quite count!) and my general reluctance to do winter sport type activities I needed to think slightly outside the box. I’d thought initially about a photo of a mug of hot chocolate topped with whiped cream – but I don’t have any cream in the house. I then noticed the monkeygirl’s walking boots; in our family we go out well prepared for the weather. We’re all rather too likely to fall, even when prepared, for us to venture out in snow without reasonable walking boots; even the monkeyboy at the age of 4 has some.
