First snow day to walk to school.
Only they didn't.
Because Amy has never walked to school in the snow before and it was still snowing when we all woke up and Monday is extreme lugging day as, as well as the usual school bag, they carry their PE kit, library bag, school lunch bag (apron, mask and cap) and musical instrument (recorder for Meg, pianica for Amy) and I just thought we should try and get Amy to school in one piece and not soaking wet and shivering as she had slid and slipped her way down the hill.
Of course they have snowboots with built in spikes.
But of course being daredevil young ratbags Meg and her walking partner retract their spikes till they get to the bottom of the hill so they can slide down the mountain on black ice.
Just so their mummies can have a few more gray hairs and freak outs each morning, right?
And I just know that Amy is gonna try this too.
And putting that off a day is just fine with me.
But they didn't miss out on sliding after all as the car slid going down the hill. Not a lot but just a wibble wobble.
Did I mention how much I loooove winter?
