Keep seeing stuff in the papers and saw a cold weather warning on met office www.metoffice.gov.uk/weather/uk/coldweatheralert/.

Is it true? Where? When? How?

I'm pricking my ears up over Fridays potential grin though if it comes off it will be shortlived.

Lots of pain today. hey ho.

fancypuffin, you are very welcome smile

Oh no sorry Kitten. Here is some brew and thanks

awww, thank you smile

Please no snow. None for worcestershire til the schools have broken up. Thanks....

OYMLK, sorry today is a bad day. sad

Hot Chocolate is called for I think.

Grey, damp and murky here. DS2 had a football match at 8.30 this morning - I am thankful it wasn't freezing - he is in goal so gets pretty cold. Then cries.

All three little Mankies are desperate for the white stuff.

I hope it snows! I live in NW and we NEVER get good snow! Too close to the coast! It's poo! We keep getting snow warnings and then no snow!hmm

I have a wedding on Saturday up in north Yorkshire.

Am holding off deciding what to wear until the middle of the week. What can you predict weater wise? Am hoping for cold and bright. Rain would be unfortunate and snow could be a disaster.

Oooh another goalie Mum manky. I have two of them. smile

OYMLK hope you are feeling better soon.

Sparklingbrook DS 1 is right back and sub goalie for his under 11 team, DS2 is one of two main goalies for the two under 7's.

The last time it was cold he stood in goal and cried. blush

Today he went out to the game with so many layers on he looked like the Mitchelin Man! grin

The sun has just made an appearance here. shock

We had some lovely predictions for snow last Thursday. I had it all planned, snow day for the kids, sledging, hot chocolate, smores, Christmas films etc, etc,

What happened, rain!!! Rain and then more rain.

We want snow!

manky being a goalie Mum is stressful. I always have to take the hand warmers. I can barely watch the game as if the ball goes anywhere near them i can't look. grin

We have sunshine too now but the sky looks a strange grey colour. sad

I agree it's awful. Especially when you have a DS who gets distracted while in goal. blush

It's gone grey here again, in time for DH and DS1 to head off to watch football. I've just had to reset the hand warmers from this morning for them to take this afternoon!

Joining this thread - I normally just take the weather as it comes, but we are supposed to be doing a 5 hour drive to Yorkshire on the 21st, and back on the 23rd. I really hope it's either completely clear and dry, so we can go, or thick snow, so we cancel.

The worst position is that it is a bit iffy, so we go, then get stuck. Or, we cancel, and MIL goes bonkers!

I am due to fly from Dublin to Gatwick on Wednesday night. I will have run out of clean pants by then so fingers crossed runways on both sides of the Irish Sea will be clear grin
Mind you, I love snow so much that I'd probably just turn my pants inside out and get on with the snowballs and snowmen and constant sky news updates on Arctic Britain

Breakdown is back on for Friday with snow looking most likely for northern half of England and Scotland.

Possible snow showers for eastern England perhaps down into Kent, for the first half of the week.

I have found myself getting more and more interested in weather changes <getting old> DH is sick of the updates on temp and possibilities of snow/rain etcblush
