My Rocking My World this Friday mainly concerns..........
The kids, Grant and I haven't been able to get to school or work since the snow started on Tuesday! There are no trains, no buses (although we haven't had buses for years now), the roads are far too dangerous to even attempt getting out and the schools are closed. We're bunkered together and you know what? We're lovin' it! We've been doing a mixture of everyday chores, tidying jobs we've been meaning to get round to for a while, watching films, craftin' (me), catching up on snoozing (Grant) and watching the extreme weather around us and on the news. More snow is forecast for tonight and tomorrow, along with freezing rain.
I spotted a rat scuttling around in the run under our rabbit's hutch this morning - we went out to investigate and found a perfect rat tunnel running through the snow, with a little opening into Clifford's run (they'd chewed some of the wood to make it a bit easier to get in). Hope thought it was, "so sweet". We didn't, and have now moved Cliffy's hutch.
|Grant, me and Rosie Mae, the best dog in the world.|
|Me and my girl (I was making sure she didn't run away from the camera).|
|The best dog in the world, she insisted on coming outside with us.|
I'm so thankful we have central heating (I'm touching wood here to ensure it doesn't suddenly break down - is that only a British superstition?). We are as warm as toastie (although not quite warm enough to be walking around in a t-shirt as Luke is!).
I'm so grateful we are all at home, safe and well. Some poor people are having dreadful journeys, battling with trains or non flying planes. I really feel for them.
Grant's busy putting up blinds in the kitchen - we bought them at least 5 years ago. We don't like to rush into anything! Thank you for putting them up, love. I can hear him muttering away, something about 'lintels', 'rubbish drill', 'stupid drill bit' etc etc......... I just called out to check he was ok, "Yes, fine thank you!" was the reply. Bless him!
I'm relieved that Hope's gradually shaking off her dreadful cough, thanks to Covonia for chesty coughs and lots of rest - her snow days came just at the right time.
Once I've linked this post with Virginia, the Rocking Queen (click on the button on my sidebar), I'm going to cook some lunch (we're having some very strange combinations but it won't kill us).
Wherever you are, whatever the weather is doing for you (if you leave a comment, tell us what it's like where you are), keep safe.
