Snow Day

Yayyy!!!  A snow day.

Everything grinds to a halt when we have snow in this country.  We got sent home from school at lunchtime on Friday and had Monday off too.  I've also been woken up yesterday morning and this morning too by a text from school to confirm that school is open.

Monday was lovely as all unexpected holidays are and very few jobs got done.  We decided that a holiday was to be treated as a holiday and only essential jobs were done.

We have a bit of snow today but it is all wrong.  Enough to make driving horrible but not enough to get us a day off.  It is still enough to keep the kids at school in "high" mode, though : )

There was a huge flock (right word??) of seagulls flying around the garden and swooping right up close to the house for about half an hour.  We've not had that before.  We do see them from time to time but not in our garden.
