Christmas is just around the corner, are we all ready?
I *think* I have most things sorted now, although will most probably be heading into town to brave the last minute rush on Christmas eve, there is always something else you need, right?
I woke up this morning at 3am, with my other half telling me it was snowing slightly, I just couldn't get back off to sleep after that, not sure why, maybe it had something to do with the little boy who had wiggled in bed beside me, or the dogs foot in my face, our bed really is getting too small for all the extras! So I decided to cut my looses and came downstairs at 6am, leaving the bed to my now two sleeping children,the dog followed me down and my other half had already given up his spot and he's now sound asleep on the sofa behind me. Oh the joys hey.
As I sit here with the news on, it keeps telling me to expect 10 -25cm of snow, and how the country is at a standstill with roads cosed and planes cancelled, I look outside my back door and yes we do have a covering, but certainly nothing to shout home about, maybe 1 - 2 cm which is the first we've had since over 2 weeks ago, when we had a bit more but it seems not as much as other parts of the country. I'd love a proper white Christmas, lots and lots of fluffy snow, make a snow man on Christmas eve, then come snuggle inside warm by the fire and wait for the big man himself, mince pie and coke at the ready, I don't know who is more excited, I'd say with me being up early already and we're still a few days to go, it must be me!
Here's a quick picture for you all, my view out the back door just now:and as I was putting this photo on my camera and found this one took yesterday :D
