The Beast from the Baltic

The Beast from the Baltic… is no match for Emma!

The Beast brought icy winds and sub zero temperatures… and just about enough snow to make the Pond look like a massive Victoria sponge cake. But beneath this delicate dusting there was quite a respectable thickness of ice for a couple of nights’ work.

Emma brought a dainty little claw hammer… but she also brought a press photographer, her best sparkly hat, a purple bikini, and quite a lot of attitude.

I would offer to lend Emma my sledgehammer*, but I think she’s probably dangerous enough.

*For the record: I have never broken my way into a pond with it, I’ve only ever used it for bashing in posts, and it’s not really as useful as the lump hammer. A girl should own a range of hammers, just in case.
