I started today’s post completely differently. It began as a rather long winded panic about how many commitments I have on right now and descended into a rant.
I deleted that one. Boring.
So, instead of focusing on the things that need to be done let’s look at the positives.
We have had a four day weekend, thanks to the snow. We had sledging time. Snowball fights. We made snowmen – and a snow lady with oversized breasts (don’t ask!). My family and I have caught snowflakes on our tongues and made snow angels. We have sat in front of the fire with hot chocolate and played PS games. It’s been a happy weekend, full of family time.
I am however optimistic that school will be open tomorrow.
Like most parents, much as I love having my children home with me, I appreciate the time that they go to school and the calm descends on the house. I am looking forward to a return to normality.
Snow, I have decided, is much like camping. Two days of it are great, three days are tiring. Four days are too much!
