Trafalgar Square, London, December 2010. M25 was deserted as we drove 7 hours, across country for a week in Boulogne. 5 months pregnant and desperate for a holiday, wasn't gonna let a little snow put me off. My medicine had frozen in the car it was so cold. It was a bit hairy but we made good time and had a lovely holiday.
