    Loads of snow overnight here so I've got all three children home instead of just the one I had yesterday. I do however have one very miffed cat.

    Just heard Caitlins dance class is cancelled tonight and keeping that Daniels football will be.

    Another family dinner coming up - they are such a rariety for us and it was so lovely yesterday.

    I'm thinking syrup sponge and custard :D

    We've got shepherd's pie tonight.

    Toying with the idea of a chocolate sponge but thinking of all the calories we consumed yesterday.

    However, we don't get many chances to do this together so I may just go for it. :D

    Steven ate the leftover syrup sponge for breakfast.

    The radio reports the local roads are still dangerous due to all the ice... so i am working from home again :)

    We had been preparing Steven for the fact the school may be open today, got him into his school uniform and made his packed lunch and everything...

    ... I just called the school (as dawn cannot talk at the moment), and it is closed :)

    Steven went nuts... 2 minutes later he is standing in the middle of the sitting room, naked...

    He is now in "snow day" clothes.

    Hope you all have a good warm and safe day.
    I nearly spilt my wine here at the image of Steven racing to get his clothes off!

    Sounds like someone I know

    Hope you all enjoy your Snow Day!
    Next trip - Bali! (March 2015)

    He never gets his uniform ON that quickly.

    Mostly thawing here now - dog's toys starting to emerge in the garden.

    i was ultra organised and called both schools before 8am and before waking the boys - both schools were closed, so i went back to bed!

    fast forward to 11.15am, we're all pottering around and the phone rings....it's DS9 school wondering where he is!

    i told her i phoned and the message said the school was shut, her response "well it must have been *very* early as we changed our minds at 8 o'clock!"

    i'm not sure why but i got the impression i did something wrong by calling in earlier than 8am.....

    well he's signed off as sick now as i wasn't going to send him anyway! he's had this nasty cold and lots of nose bleeds so i though a couple of days indoors wouldn't hurt him....

    Changed their mind at 8am!!

    What are you supposed to do - phone every 10 minutes just in case?

    I've decided snow days are not good. I'm sat here browsing the Disney stuff on ebay. The shoes I ordered yesterday arrived today so now need something else to look forward to being delivered.
