Then it was home-time for the Horrors:
For once Miss M didn't complain about walking home. In fact she loved it.
And the advantage of all this white stuff falling was that there was finally enough snow to go sledging.
The Boy doesn't like sledging (to be more accurate, he doesn't like getting cold and wet) but Miss M was keen, so after a bit of poking a broom-handle at the upper regions of the garage I managed to retrieve a sledge and off we went.
We didn't really stay out all that long as it was still snowing and getting dark but it was worth it to see how much she enjoyed it! Then it was home for pizza. Haggis may be consumed sometime this weekend, but Friday night is Pizza Night. Carved in stone and strictly enforced by Miss M.
Today has been a l-a-z-y day. There's been a gradual thaw and consequently a rawness about the wind, so aside from brief forays into the outside world (Miss M's gymnastics class, My Beloved going to the supermarket) we have stayed cosily inside. I have sewed things, Miss M has forced Barbie and Ken have adventures, and we've discovered that as Ken has proper feet he can stand while poor Barbie has been forced into ill-fitting plastic shoes all her life and can do nothing unaided, poor lass. My Beloved has made tacos and tortillas and fish-fingers. The Boy has rediscovered Club Penguin (now with added dinosaurs) The cats have complained bitterly about being inside when they wish to be outside, and vice versa, and then fallen asleep. One's asleep on my feet right now. And I am feeling pleasantly dozy. *yawn*
