Project Optimism – School is in Session!

I started today’s post completely differently. It began as a rather long winded panic about how many commitments I have on right now and descended into a rant.

I deleted that one. Boring.

So, instead of focusing on the things that need to be done let’s look at the positives.

We have had a four day weekend, thanks to the snow. We had sledging time. Snowball fights. We made snowmen – and a snow lady with oversized breasts (don’t ask!). My family and I have caught snowflakes on our tongues and made snow angels. We have sat in front of the fire with hot chocolate and played PS games. It’s been a happy weekend, full of family time.

I am however optimisticย that school will be open tomorrow.

Like most parents, much as I love having my children home with me, I appreciate the time that they go to school and the calm descends on the house. I am looking forward to a return to normality.

Snow, I have decided, is much like camping. Two days of it are great, three days are tiring. Four days are too much!

    • My to-do list today is ridiculous, not helped by getting my car stuck in a snow drift and having to borrow one to get the kids to school, making me an hour late to get started on work ๐Ÿ™ The puppy is loving the snow though, I will post some more pictures in a bit. It is beautiful here at the moment.

  1. I’ve never experienced a snow day, but I’m sure I’d be climbing up the walls after a few days. Wish I could’ve seen a picture of the snowman/woman with big BOOBS! ๐Ÿ™‚

    • This was last winter’s snow and now the whole of the UK is under water I think I would prefer last year’s snow to all this rain. I don’t think we are going to get any fluffy whiteness this year.

Speak up and tell me what you think!
