Snow joke

Well, this is fun isn't it? The heaviest snowfall in London in....is it one decade or two? David, who loves a good crisis, woke me up at half past six to inform me that there's "no way" he's going into work today. "No trains, no buses!" he announced cheerfully.

I love snow. No, I do, seriously. But only if I don't have to spend that much time in it. I took the dogs out last night and they went mental. Well, Junior Dog did - Middle Dog trudged merrily along as Junior flew round like a thing possessed and Senior Dog gave the impression that he had far better things to do than walk down a snowy road at quarter past ten. The charade was repeated this morning, this time with Mac who is off school as it's shut. Junior Dog ran round and round in circles barking at Middle Dog who was more interested in trying to catch the snowflakes whilst Senior Dog sat down on a warm manhole cover and refused point blank to move.

So, we're in for the duration (even though Junior Dog has just presented me with his lead and collar for the third time since half past seven), I've made leek and potato soup, David has been despatched to Ayres to panic buy doughnuts and returned to inform me that there were "no croissants, no rolls, no french sticks, no sausage rolls......" I interrupted him with "Were there doughnuts?". When he nodded and waved a bag of six of the little devils at me, I felt a wave of calm wash over me.

There is a chance - only a small one mind, that I may be addicted.

It's like a ghost town here - no cars - it is so lovely. Am bunkered indoors and about to make hot soup for lunch too!!

I'm at work - boo. The 4 year old's school is the only one out of four in the village open. Normally they close at the drop of a snowflake!

Six doughnuts? Surely in a crisis like this bulk buying is the only way forward.

Snow is fine when it comes to visit... so long as it doesn't plan to move in with you for months...

I wish my school had been shut and I could've stayed at home with doughnuts!

Does life get any better than snow and doughnuts?!

This is something we can get here every single month of the year! I'm not kidding!

We're so use to stuff like this that we're all laughing at the standstill that's happened over there. Ah well. You guys can laugh at how we have to put up with it all the time while you get - rain.

Did I mention how much I love New Orleans?

I half hoped Amy's school would be closed this morning as I could have just done with an extra hour in bed. No such luck.

I'm assuming they were jam? And you have tea? Well, frankly, you're all set then. And btw, I've tagged you - check out my last post to find out how...

All about me

Nunhead, London, United Kingdom
I'm a mum of one, wife of one and owner to several dogs, a variety of breeds and sizes. I live in the up and coming area (or so they say) of Nunhead and have mad neighbours, strange friends and certifiable relatives. I shop locally, although I do defect to Sainsburys once a week - shoot me now local shopkeepers.
