The snow came down this week - not loads but enough to close the school and give the kids an extra day off after the weekend.
The Grumps suggested that it would be good to take the boys outside along the lane and back again and was Mummy coming too? Oh boy. Do I have to? I don't do the cold very well - this is where I turn in to Mrs Grumps ... after I've donned the fleecy tights, the skinnys over those, the thermal socks, lined the wellys with fleece liners, donned an extra fleece, zipped myself up to the neck and plonked the furry hat on. Armed and ready and with a face like thunder.
Okay - it wasn't that bad. It wasn't that cold and I'd already laid down the law with the kids - snowball with 3 inches of me and they're going to boarding school!
Yes - I really do wear that hat in public!
You saying I'm heavy????
Last note :
For those who have been out in the snow with their kids this week ... who's done this? I know I have!
Mum to Ben & George, married to the Grumps, living in suburbia, somewhere in the north of England.
