I had just about had enough. The pavements have been slippery, preventing me from my stress-relieving and head-space provideing running. The roads have been an unsightly mixture of slush and ice. The car is filthy. And this morning we woke to fresh snow! Although it didn't seem to me any better than last week's, local schools didn't close and Wednesday church was not cancelled. I brushed off the car, loaded in three children and two neighbours and we set off. My middle son did the reading and we all enjoyed some cake, some tea, chatting with our friends and looking at a different four walls!
We have come home to play in the snow, an alternative to our planned swimming trip. I think I can pass this off as both PE and art!
