Snowing in Newbury… well kinda

Since leaving Aberdeenshire, snow down here is a real non-event and really annoying how a few cms means that everyone has an emotional freak-out or break-down.

Seriously, schools closing when there is 2cm of the stuff that will be melted by break time?  Lazy teachers? Health & Safety gorn mad? It is so crap.  Traffic chaos because suddenly people cannot drive or realise that the conditions *may* affect their stopping distance or viz? Please.

Last day of the school term today. Woo hoo. Beth went to horse of the year show yesterday and managed to get on sky tv. Thank fully there was no horse shit on her Uggs as I had feared.  She was a bit tired this morning but praying that her school was *not* among those pathetic closures, she has a treat day and also presents to give out so she was adament that she go.

Ellie is finishing early and then going to the cinema with her friends. Maybe having a sleep over at a friends, but it sounds like the friend has not actually asked her parents yet.  Oh memories.

Still have a fair few pressies to buy, but on the whole almost there with the xmas shopping. Going into town tomorrow with the kids and the parents so that will be interesting!  Also got a house viewing ‘crazy’ aren’t I! tomorrow afternoon which is a renovation project so not getting hopes up too much and it may be a blessing if it is pitch black at 4pm.

Finishing work at 1pm today to walk dogs with Cat and have a catch up.  If your ears are burning between 1.30pm and 2.30pm then you’ll know that we are bitching about you.
