    I like the idea of riding the slippery slope in a sleigh loaded up with duvets and heat pads. That would certainly make it more bearable. January has been so tough hasn’t it? The snow made things feel better here too and it sounds like your eldest had a nice birthday. Hope that things get better for everyone on the home-schooling front and that you can get some better rest and the pain eases a little too. #WotW

    It’s nice that the kids had fun in the snow – however old they are! I think the online school work gets to them all after a while. Hope next week is better.

    How exciting to get some now. It is a shame you couldn’t get down to make a snow angel but it does sound like you had a lot of fun with the boys.
    Happy birthday to your eldest. It sounds like he had a great day.
    Oh Anne, Sending love and hugs. So sorry the rest of your week has gone downhill. The home learning is hard going. We’ve had a few moments when it all seemed a little too much but thankfully the school have taken pity and set some fun work this past week.
    It sounds harsh but your girls need to realise they have to submit the work or they will have to go to school. I’d like to see how the school enforce that though.
    No wonder your health has been deteriorating with all the stress you are under. I hope you manage to get some decent sleep and some stress free moments over the weekend xxx

    I have an image in my head of you riding a amazing sledge, with duvets and furs through a snow laden scene. The snow was good. We didn’t have quite as much as you, but enough for a snowman and sledging. Snowman making is a skill. I’m glad you and your Eldest were on hand to show him the ropes. January is a hard month. I hope February brings you some pain relief. This week was difficult to get my two school ones up and at the desk in time. Spring is just round the corner. Hang on in there.

    I’m so sorry you are having a rough time too. Our house is small and it’s starting to feel even smaller! The birthday meal sounds amazing. I’m jealous you had snow, we didn’t get any. Let’s hope things improve in February for us all #WotW
