It's here, lots and lots of snow. Actually, not that much, but 6" is way more than the local road gritters can cope with, apparently!
School was open this morning, however the headmaster gave me the option to take the kids straight back home, but for some reason I thought it was a better use of taxpayer's money to try to get to work.
I got half way there, in twice the time it should have; visibility sporadic, road surface slippy and the other drivers on the white-knuckle duel-carriageway, mental! So I did an about turn and headed back home.
I stopped off for some milk in the village, and it was like a scene from Armageddon in Tesco Express, the shelves were pretty much bare, and people were frantically filing up with petrol, I assume in case they were going to have to evacuate to warmer climes!
So I got home, suffering from brain-freeze, and did a run round with the hoover before the school finally closed at 10.30am.
I left the snowball fights and sledge-dragging to the kids, whilst I sewed up my next Stitch Tease block, a 24-incher for Helen. Bright wonky stars on Kona Ash, but I can't show you anything more than the sneaky peak above, sorry.
Rainbows was unsurprisingly cancelled this evening too, much to the girls' disappointment, so we baked some cookies instead; happy faces all round.
And that was my Snow day. I hope you have stayed warm (or cool Mrs S!), and are easing nicely into the weekend. I am off to to do some PLPS stalking xxx
