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.
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.
I nearly spilt my wine here at the image of Steven racing to get his clothes off!Originally Posted by Hex, post: 102593
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.
