Worth a mention

It has snowed a lot in England in the last 2 days. So naturally for us, everything has ground to a halt.

The last time it snowed this bad was 18 years ago. Which I remember as one of my most vivid memories.

It was one of those days where we went to school in the snow in the morning. We (sister and friend) got picked up by a neighbour eventually. And got to spend the afternoon at home. The next day I think we played in the snow, dad pulled us around the top of our cul-de-sac on a sled. Our next door neighbour helped the milkman deliver the milk.

The snow plough came up the road and dumped the snow on our front lawn, and we made thrones our of the mountain of snow! We were 5/6 at the time, it was the funnest thing ever.

I'll attempt to go into work tomorrow, but school is closed and it remains to be seen if we do breakfast club on wednesday.
