Let it snow

Let it snow, let it snow, let it snow...

First time that the weather forecast predicted has come true. Woke up on Monday morning with tons of snow.

Heard on the radio that tubes, trains and buses not running. But still got up and took my shower and got ready as usual. Then at 7.30 called my boss to say that don't think I would be going in to work and he said the same, so asked me to send an email round to tell everyone not to go in.

Worked from home instead replying to emails, etc and from looking at the news, saw that almost all of London had come to a standstill. Schools were shut and most offices only had sketeton staff!

Flights were cancelled as runways were too icy, etc.

Liana said how come she had to work when I didn't. I replied because she was working from home! haha.

Anyway, when she finished in the afternoon, she got me to go out to the garden and help her build a snowman.

A little joke to share with you - our cleaner normally comes on a Monday and she came as usual, except that Pat had to tow her up the hill to our house. Reason? Our house is almost at the top of a little hill (that's the reason why I cannot go out when it snows as well) anyway - as she turned into our driveway, her car slid sideways all the way to the bottom of the hill. She tried driving back up but to no avail, so Pat had to go out and tow her back up to us!

These are some of the pictures that were taken.
