Snow Days

We’ve had some rare weather for this part of the world this week, snow.  Which I just realised I have no photo’s of whatsoever cos I spent most of the time indoors, reading and occasionally cooking soup.  Whoops.

Luckily school was open Thursday morning so an appearance by both Hester Shaw

and Tiffany Aching could be made for world book day.  After that we mainly sat around reading and eating with the occasional trip outside (me less than the others as a certain young man requisitioned my wellies cos he’d left his at school. Oh the hardships one endures as a parent, in this case, staying inside warm and dry.) We were some of the lucky ones without power cuts, boiler failure or stuck in a car in a snowdrift. The worst hardship I had to endure was a day without tea due to a lack of milk available locally.

Today, however, I have come out of hibernation enough to use some scraps to make myself three new pairs of knickers, all matching and yet not matching, almost like a shop bought set.  There’s also a couple of more of the ubiquitous headbands/circular scarves/earwarmers.

And now that the snow is pretty much all gone, it is being commemorated in biscuit form.  What more fitting a tribute?
