This has been a difficult week and even though I was sliding down slippery slope I really thought I’d reached the bottom. But no! It ended with a massive crash. The good news is that things are on the up now. I think we really did fall to the floor and now it’s time to start picking up the pieces. Well, I hope so, fingers tightly crossed. The week started good though and there was a fair measure of cake!
It was my eldest son’s birthday and I think he enjoyed his cake. I made it following the BBC Good food recipe and just for good measure I made another cake for the kids. This was just chocolate with buttercream and chocolate sprinkles and Star helped me to make it.
Never mind the Cake, Let’s Measure the Snow!
Last weekend we had a snowfall and I shared some snowy pics in my last post but I loved that my Little Man was obsessed with measuring how deep the snow was with his ruler.
I think the deepest snow he measured was 9cm which was on the trampoline. That’s not a bad snowfall really, I’m glad it didn’t last too long though. As well as measuring the snow he also made two snowmen with his brother.
It snowed again yesterday but it didn’t stick around which I was grateful for. It’s nice to experience a snowfall in winter, but I wouldn’t like to have to live with it for any length of time. It disrupted the beginning of the week for us with Graham not being able to get the car out of our grove to get my daughter to work. I was surprised that the shopping delivery turned up, but he did although he was nearly an hour late. Then he got stuck. I guess that’s what we get for living at the bottom of a hill.
