Last Friday we headed off to Nan’s for a Christmas visit. Everyone was going on about the weather, it was cold up north but nothing too bad…..in fact it wasn’t bad until we got about 10-15 miles from Nan’s. Then it was solid ice!!! We saw a fair few cars in the hedges along the way, but we got there safely.
The next morning we headed out into the garden to play in the snow….
Caitlin was the first to get too cold and so she went in while Noah put the finishing touches to the snowman!!
I then ran inside to get Caitlin for a snowman picture but during that time Noah reached his coldness threshold and so he vanished inside!!! So no joint picture!!
On the Sunday we ventured out for a walk, or should I say skate!!!!! It was so icy, Caitlin and Noah fell over a million times, it took us hours to walk about a quarter of a mile to the front.
After our walk we had a Sunday roast, so we classed that as Christmas dinner complete with crackers and hats and did presents afterwards. Caitlin and Noah got a phonics desk and lots of other bits and pieces and me and Richard got beer, chocolates and some money for the sales!!!
We didn’t really do much for the rest of the week as it was too icy to go out so we just relaxed and played with Nan!!
We were supposed to be going to visit Cousin R but they were all sick so we didn’t go which was a real shame as Caitlin and Noah were very excited about seeing R and I was dying to try to get a decent picture of the 4 of them together…. So we headed home a day early. The journey was a nightmare…..
Everywhere was covered in snow and ice and although the main roads were clear it was foggy and there was a lot of traffic so it took us 7 and a half hours!!!!!!!
