The One With The Snow

Today like most of the local area ended up with a Snow Day. I didn’t – it was clear enough outside my house to risk driving to work – if it had been really bad outside I would have spoken to my Manager and see if there was anything that I could do from home.

On the other hand, My 15yo Cousin has been given today off by her school because it’s closed – she goes to the same Upper School that I went to – I only remember one bad snow fall like what we are having at the moment and even then the school didn’t close – I walked home in about 4 inches of snow in my normal school shoes – my feet were rather cold by the time I got home that day.

My 9yo cousin on the other hand has had to go into school – I have the feeling he’s really not impressed – then again he might not actually know as I think my 15yo cousin walks herself to school and the 9yo and my Aunt leave before she does.

Anyway so I got to work at 5 past 9 – yep I was late – I had misjudged how long it would take me to get to work in snow and at 15-20mph instead of 30mph. I got here and it was just me and Aunty Ali to start with – my Manager arrived at about 10 ish but it’s quiet – I guess lots of people are affected – I looked up Northamptonshire school closures as that’s the next county over from us and like 80% of schools are closed – maybe even more than that – I’m not sure if we are due more snow but it’s possible the Carol Service tonight could be cancelled.

    I am just catching up on blog posts over the past week or so! just wanted to say, I made it into work, although I did cheat and drive, we had Joys mums car sitting in the drive it was too tempting! your hubby wanted me to go down with him to pick up some stuff from the rock, we had to use the minibus as I had already dropped the car back to my inlaws, I agreed but only if HE cleared the snow off the minibus.

      That sounds like a good deal lol.

      CJ asked me to collect him from Church today because it was too cold and wet for him to walk home.
