Snow day...

We had a lovely lot of snow last night around 5-6", Sam was not too pleased though as I said Steven wouldn't be going to school, and Clive also didn't venture to work, as where he is working we heard on the radio that a lorry had jack knifed and the road was closed, (luckily no one was hurt).... so Sam phoned the practice manager (hoping) but was told they were still open... had to laugh though as no dentist had made it into work, just the practice manager, Sam (a dental nurse) and a hygienist, so they closed after phoning and canceling the people who had not already phoned to cancel, so she had half a snow day....

Had to laugh at Steven also, as he kept looking out the back window and was not impressed... I had hoped to take him out for a walk in it, but both Sam and my sister who had to walk to work in it, said it was too slippery, so we stayed put in doors watching DVD's...

Clive took the opportunity to go round and do some work on Sam's house... Sam also went round the house to help Clive for a bit before coming home, so then I took the opportunity to get Steven out in the garden, as still fresh snow and not slippery, but not only Steven was not impressed with the snow but he's not one for going out into the garden, but with Sam's help of taking photo's did manage to get a few photos....





and I even managed to get Steven to actually hold some snow, the idea was him to throw it, but he just dropped it, lol... do you like he's new hat, Claire (he's sessional worker) bought him and a matching scarf for Christmas, it's got the dangler ear pieces, lol...



I have also taken some photos of the garden in the snow, hopefully will do a slide show of them very soon...
