note from dad  because Jake did not like the noise we went on top of the hill to allow us to see a display without the loud noise ,

It was cold standing at the top of the hill and it was windy !

looking down on Horwich
http://www.hrmicc.com/home/ is the firework display i came to see
Horwich is where I live

we had some hot chocolate and some snacks

my dad had taught me to keep warm by dropping height and useing the heather to keep out of the wind so i became warm

I am keeping my eyes shut for the flash !

the fireworks were great ,
this is just a small part of the them ,
i hope one day to be able to watch them close up !

recent incident on sledging

Note from dad : you have to careful – these slopes had very deep snow and soft landings where we went , there are rocks hidden under the snow in other parts of these slopes , please be careful

-Jake spent a lot of time learning how to up and down deep snow slopes safely, also how to enjoy himself  safely , there is always a trade off of undertaking more extreme forms of outdoor activities (for a 7 year old) and  safety, have fun but do this safely,
