Yesterday morning G was able to get to work without a hitch as the buses were running reasonable ok. From 7am I had the radio on and kept updating the schools closure list on the internet until at 8.45 it was confirmed T's school was closed. S's though was open. Both were happy, T that he was staying home and S that she could go to school.
So T and I took her in and then come home and had a snowball fight with a few of his friends. I left them to it after a while as my fingers were stinging with the cold and went in to drink tea and eat a hot cross bun as this seemed like a far more sensible option.
We took this photo of T's school after dropping S off, the playground looks so perfectly white.
S's school decided to close at mid-day so she only had a half day in the end.
Out in the back garden we made a mini snowman and had another snowball fight, back indoors we wrote a few more thank you notes and cheated and sent a few by email too.
Today the schools are closed again. G left early to make sure he got in to work ok and was there half an hour early so he can leave half an hour early tonight. I am very thankful that we have enjoyed the snow and everyone is safe but I'm also wishing I had the house to myself today! I know that sounds mean but I after the school break and Christmas and all the busyness I was looking forward to a bit of quiet time.
That'll have to wait for another day and instead we'll make sure we all do something we enjoy.
And if you're reading this Sue, I hope you had a wonderful birthday earlier this week.
