For a fleeting five minutes I thought how lovely it would be to walk the kiddies to their school and have a cosy day at home. By myself. A rarity. This never happens. And it didn't. The text came through five minutes later from their school to confirm its closure.
'Dammit' was my initial thought. Then guilt for wanting some time to myself without them.
-So, waterproofs were dragged on over fleeces, scarves, hats, mittens and wellies.
We walked down the lane to the big fields where snowballs were thrown, snowmen - of sorts - were built and snow angels made.
Then we got cold. And wet.
Best thing for that was to go back home for hot chocolate and chai tea latte.
Now I've locked them out in the garden so I can get five minutes peace with my cuppa.
I feel no guilt.
