Friday was horrible. took the best part of 3 hours to get home, there were a couple of bits where I couldn't grip the road and so many knobbers who drive too fast and too close. Driving up the street to my street (which is uphill) I was basically knocking off the kerbs on each side of the road. Not fun at all. And out drive slopes downwards so I couldn't park on it without the fear of hitting the house.

Friday afternoon was spent teaching Ex-Cheddar how to make snow angels and throw snowballs. (Her snowball throwing is nearly as bad as mine)

Saturday was spent making a 'better' snowman with Daddy and causing wanton vandalism to mine. (The cheeky gets pushed mine over!)

Sunday I ventured out for the weekly shop which wasn't too terrifying but it's snowed a couple of centimetres here this evening and is showing no sign off letting up so I'm not feeling massively hopeful about getting to work tomorrow. Unless we take the bus. Which I think Ex-Cheddar will love.

Today we made this:

He has been named Snowtoro.

Off to go and find some bus timetables.

The thermometer in the conservatory (where Ex-Cheddar's toys live) is saying -5•c.


And a certain Ex-Cheddar wants to play out there (due to the toys) so we've been out there in hats, scarves and gloves. Our neighbours must think we're very strange.

Remember that massive full moon we had the other week? Well I tried to take some photos of it.

As you can see there are always loads of trees in the way. Damn you trees!

However, I think that this picture is brilliant. I love the shadows of the tree branches and the way the moon glows through it.

I'd love to get a proper SLR to take some brilliant pictures of the moon but I really can't afford it.

Hey [livejournal.com profile] steviesun, are you home safe? It looks really bad down your way again. Stupid snow.

Today it was a heady 3*C round my way. I could actually go outside without a hat and gloves on. I love the snow but I am getting a bit bored of it. And I'm getting really annoyed with stupid people who think it's fine to drive at high speed on the slushy roads. Idiots.

Just watched the weather forecast. They've said it's going to be -14•c round my way tonight. I've never experienced such nippy weather. Brr!

Like most places in the country we had some snow last night! Hoorah! Not as much as some places though. Bilbo is in a proper mood about it. He's limping about today because the cold makes his hip (where he dislocated it) hurt so he's only going out under duress (i.e. I have to physically put him outside - there is much crying).

The school by me wasn't closed today. There were a lot of kids this morning and this afternoon running up and down our road with snowballs having a great old time.

...at length.

I'm old enough to just about remember when we used to get a couple of days of heavy snow every winter. Peter Simon from TV's Blue Peter even came out to our vilage when I was 8 or 9 to do a piece about us ice skating on the fens.

That's as close as Bilbo would get to the snow. He's not a happy bunny at the moment. He just sits on the windowsill and growls at the snow.

As lovely as it is, it had better all be gone by Wednesday, I have a evening class to get to and it's down loads of horrible twisty country roads that are all unlit. Woes.

Well with this post I successfully completed NaBloPoMo. So hoorah for me!

some photos from my drive home on Friday )

And some Random links to finish:

And don't forget to fill out the poll linked in my sidebar if you'd like a Christmas Card off me.

No really. I actually nearly did.

Driving home, minding my own business, thundercloud up above rumbling ominously. Suddenly about sixty or seventy foot in front of me lightning hit the road (m'Dad reckons it hit a drain cover). Had I left work 10 or 15 seconds earlier it would have been a direct hit!

I am somewhat freaked out by it. (Yes I know being in a car is the safest place to be in a thunderstorm but my no claims discount would have been decimated.)

I rung His Lordship and my dad when I got in and they both said "Did you take a picture of it?" erm, no.

I've got home and it's clear blue sky and sunny. But over towards work it's just a mass of black.

People in certain parts of the UK may have noticed a massive massive thunderstorm on Tuesday. My pop was driving on the M6 by Stoke and he rang me from the middle of the storm saying hail the size of 10p pieces was falling.

The only good shot I managed from a 6 hour thunderstorm, although I did spend a lot of it just sat on my back step watching the lightning. Bilbo was much less impressed though. Unsurprisingly.
