Keep calm and get cooking

Good afternoon

Well the world is about to end! School is closed, the supermarket shelves were striped bare and my Instagram feed is full of snow pictures :)

Oh yes - a few more inches of the white stuff arrived overnight -making everything look pretty.

We woke to the news that school was cancelled - happy boys.

MrVV however has gone to work - he's hoping that this remains so he can pelt the boys with snowballs tomorrow!!

Little Son & I headed into town - there were a few bits we needed - we thought we might need another pair of wellies for him but fortunately due to my wellie hoarding a pair has been found that fits him!

Once home and after hot chocolate had been drunk, it was time do some cooking.

Homemade bread and carrot & coriander soup for lunch;

Enough leftover for the same again tomorrow.

In a while we're off into the garden to build a snowman and probably throw a snowball or two. Got to make the most of these boys of mine - perhaps in another year or so they'll think they are too old for all of this.

Thanks for all the lovely comments on my last post - I was very pleased with those pics.

Here's just a couple more - I mentioned cake making and another birthday - here's Little Son's cake;

It seems you're never to old for Toy Story! The big candle was supposed to be musical - lets just say I've heard a more tuneful sound from a cat!

The official birthday photo;


Right time to hunt out something for the snowman to wear!

Have a good weekend.

See you soon

We are loving the snow here in Suffolk. Hoping for more :o) That cake looks very tasty and you're right, you are never too old for Toy Story :o) x
Have fun in the snow.

Carrot and corriander soup is my favourite. I'm fed up of all the snow here. Bah humbug.

Lots of lovely snow here also. Your bread looks lovely, must start making some by hand rather than chucking ingredients in the bread maker.

Oooo I'm jealous it's bucketing down with snow up here now. However, we didn't get our snow day, so I had to go to work - pah!! The children's antics in school were very entertaining though :)

Happy Birthday to your young fella. Enjoy that pretty snow. Nothing like that happening downunder with our high summer temperatures and bush fires in Victoria and New South Wales. Keep warm and throw a snowball or two for me.

I'm in Cornwall and today we have snow! Your never too old for a snow day. My daughter and son had lots of fun today going down the hill, and they are 24 and 15. The birthday cake looks great my favourite chocolate.
Happy Birthday!
