SNOWay we're going to school today!

Well, it happened, it really snowed!...No school for Poppy as the village isnt all gritted and the teachers couldnt get in! Although we did make the trip to school as we've been having major problems with mobile phone signal over the last couple of days so the message didnt get through. When we arrived i almost ploughed straight into the back of my friends car as the land rover is so heavy i had a job to stop it on the roads laden with thick icy snow. So, we turned around and came home, Little sister was not impressed that big sister had a day off, and declared she was 'quite happy watching tv by myself'!.....charming.(i should point out that she was not home alone, oh no, Mr P was in bed, he's been up all night with the dreaded lurgy-man flu, so has taken root in bed for the day).

Milly moo with frosty mittens!

Poppy...'look mummy!!'

Front garden -7am

I was impressed especially as this snow is soft, powdery and beautiful(just as id ordered)and not at all sludgy(yet), in fact, just perfect, the sun is shining, and as the little ladies are trashing the upstairs, im having a little ME time.........yummy. Favourite Susie Watson mug of tea(charity shop bargain for one tiny pound)...,favourite CK bowl,tasty Cinnabon,my lovely radio,some cheery primroses......and my favourite view from the kitchen window.....

With a little company.....

Her favourite spot....

.......because of these

........pooch at my feet

Hope you enjoyed our day xxx

Welcome Ruby's Mumma!
I am back, been on a very naughty holiday! got back just in the nick of time...before the airports closed!
I love the snow, everyone is happy round here...makes a change!
We had to walk to the shops for much needed provisions. I think this must have been the smallest shop I have ever done, just could not manage to carry much more home. Love your Uggs, I live in mine too.....

Your snowday looked fab! I am hoping for more snow tonight and a few more days off work thanks to school closures.

Love the Susie Watson mug - I am a huge fan of her designs and have a couple of bits I want to add to.

I'm another one that lives in Uggs. My class mocked me today for wearing a suit and Uggs!!

Lovely blog!

Hello Ruby's Mamma, It's nice to meet you. I'm new to blogging too, still trying to work out how everything functions! I read your favourite things list, and I could put a big tick next to every one too. Keep posting!
