MrVV & I woke to the radio presenter telling us that both the boys schools were closed for the day. As the boys woke up and came in to see us they asked about school and when told there was none, snuggled into bed with MrVV & I for a little while.
It's not been too bad here today - lots of snow flurries and about 3 inches of snow at the most. The biggest problem is still the ice - we've areas that have been frozen over since December and until it warms up they'll remain like that.
The boys have kept themselves busy with homework, playing outside and also painting their airfix models they got at Christmas. Little son decided to accompany me into town to do some shopping.
Our lane to the right.

Same view but with me in the way !!
Artistic picture of snow covered holly!
This snowfall has given me a chance to play with my camera and try & get a picture to use on cards for next Christmas!! I'd decided not to pack Rudolph & Bambi away with the decorations - today they thought they would go and play in the snow!!
After spending time outside this morning, this afternoon was definately an indoors time. Last night at S&B group I had my first knitting lesson - I can now cast on and do a basic knit stitch. In a quiet moment this afternoon I sat in the front room adding more rows to my dishcloth!!
MrVV & Little son decided to bottle the homebrew (which has been doing whatever it does in my airing cupboard for the past week as the kitchen was too cold for it!!!).
22 litres of the stuff is now in bottles and is back in the airing cupboard for a few more days till it needs to move somewhere less warm but not too cold - so probably our bedroom or the front room then! Thinking of renaming the house The VV brewery!!
Just found out that both boys schools are closed again tomorrow - cue 2 happy boys and the threat of pelting me with snowballs! I guess that also means another day of gloves & socks drying on the raditor, rosy cheeks and mugs of hot chocolate :)
See you soon
