#TheOrdinaryMoments – Snow Way!

We haven’t had a decent snowfall since I was pregnant with E. Whilst E has seen snow, it has only ever been a few centimetres in depth and has never lasted for more than twenty-four hours.

This week I was half-hoping for a ‘snow day’, I say half-hoping as E had her school trip and I knew that she’d be heartbroken if it were to be cancelled. Sadly, the snow arrived but there simply wasn’t enough to warrant a snow-day (although much to E’s disappointment, the trip was postponed to stay on the safe side).

#LittleLoves – World Book Day, Snow Days & Bye Bye To The Bay

I mentioned a few weeks back that I may start writing my #LittleLoves posts on a Saturday due to time restraints on a Friday, with that in mind and the fact that I no longer spend my Saturday evening’s busy working behind the bar, I may make this schedule alteration for my weekly #LittleLoves instalment a permanent fixture.

As always at the end of each month, I sit down and take a moment to reflect upon a few of the things which I have ‘Liked and Loved’ so without further ado here is this months effort.

Snow Day!

It’s been years since we’ve had a day off due to snow, it was therefore a rather pleasant surprise to wake to the news that both Paul and I could switch off our alarms and grab an extra hour or two under the sheets.

However, moments later we were shaken from our slumber as we experienced a low scale earthquake which I first assumed to be a gritter or truck driving by. The noise unfortunately woke our daughter who then proceeded to wake the entire household.

After a failed attempt at trying to coax the kids back to sleep, Paul cut his losses and took the kids downstairs for an hour or two, whilst I caught up on some Zz’s before making a start on the household chores.…
