SNOW DAY!!!!!

Well what a day - I did get my snow day, but not before I got up, got ready and left for work - then on the way there got the message that the school had been shut for the day! So turned around and came home where the fun began.....

I could not get the car back up the driveway!! I had to enlist the help of friends to dig out the driveway enough to get a grip with the tyres and back up it! In doing so I lost my grip and slid down the drive on my rear - it was so funny, but thankfully there were no cameras out at that point! We managed clearing it eventually and I got the car safely back up, but by then it had started to snow again, and has not stopped all day! I went for a walk around my neighbourhood, as I am close to the woods and farmland, and got some great shots to share with you. My cat Hugo even ventured out for a spell, which is unheard of! He hates the feel of the snow clinging to his paws, but he managed it long enough for a couple of poses.

I hope those of you in the UK enjoyed your day and either got to and from work safely or enjoyed a snow day too. I bet those of you from the States, Netherlands or other climates used to all this snow are thinking - a little snow and you all go crazy!!! But we rarely get a decent amount of snow, so we make the most of it when we can, I am sure I will be fed up of it soon.... Enjoy the photos. x x

Sally - I see what you mean! Great pics... and Hugo could be blood-brother to my boy, Shadow! (We call him 'Ard Bast, or Bast for short when he's being snooty!!)
Let's hope normality returns sometime this week!

I dont think the snow was as heavy up here in Liverpool as my kids still went to school. They had a great time after school playing in it till past 8pm. It took me ages to get down one side road by the school as my van kept on sliding into the kerb..scary!! Hope you havent got a bruised bum and those are great photos
