Needless to say, this week has mostly been about snow and freezing temperatures.
The week started as normal, but Wednesday it snowed pretty all day on and off without settling. It was strange – blue skies one minute, then white and grey skies and snow the next. Like snowy April showers.
Thursday it seemed that we were one of the only schools open, but we hadn’t had much. I workIt was nice to be able to pick up N at a normal time on a day other than friday.
The school decided on Friday to close. Lucky really, because they’d said the main road was terrible and the back roads were badly covered with snow drifts. The joy of being in the countryside with open fields and easy wind access. It was so so cold out though, I couldn’t stay out for long. It didn’t stop N though – that might have been because he seemed to wangle a hot chocolate out of me each time he came inside.
The snow has totally screwed our weekend plans. It’s my best friend’s daughter’s christening on Sunday and we were due to drive over Lincolnshire way today. But the OH put a ban on us going (given he’d pulled 3 vehicles out of the snow by 7am.
Saturday was a lot milder weather, meaning N spent most of the day outside. The dogs were let out at the same time, so N had the labrador and puppy playing alongside him. Put the labrador in snow and she reverts back to mad puppy play. And the puppy’s shorn back leg from her broken leg operation doesn’t seem to have made her cold. I looked back on all my photos today and found this one. That’s love in a tickle under the chin.
