We thought the snow was going to skirt us by, but on Wednesday morning it was quiet, sounds muffled by the blanket of snow.
The next excitement was finding out school was closed, the children's and the school I work at.
So we were out early to the local park, wrapped up, like a pass the parcel , including me with three pairs of woolly socks!
Here is our Snowman playing football , the goalie otherwise known as "Snowlie".
Can you spot the snowball?
I can tell you, it took quite a lot of throwing to get that shot!
The afternoon was spent trying to get warm again and drying hat, scarves & gloves which were strewn over all the radiators in the house!
I wanted to make the most of this bonus day at home so I got my paints out and painted this landscape from ideas in my sketchbook.
I hope your having a good week and keeping warm.
