It can carry on snowing , I love it . I won't be driving in it so I will be relying on London transport , so far that is running well

I'm just awaiting confirmation that dd's school is open or closed . No word as yet so I'm sat here in limbo

Ahhhhhhhhhhhh found you!!! Sent Tom off to school - he is not happy they are open - has been snowing here since 7pm yesterday!!

Found you..........better rush through this thread before the snow melts....hello Shinyshoes, are you a visitor, did you bring cake? No school here, no more snow but it looks treacherous outside and the sky is black. Just read on here that a 20 yr old woman was found dead in the snow in Deal, right opposite where my Mum lived............awful. I suppose I had better get up, though why I don`t know as I have a good book by my side!

Morning! Snow day here. Teachers can't get in to school. Curse of village life but its bloody wonderful. All the kids at home and dh so off out for snow play very soon.

Chopstheduck Mon 21-Jan-13 11:19:43

Kids and dh have gone for now, but I am fed up with this snow. I want to RUN, and it all snowy. Will go out later but will have to take it very slowly again <sigh>

Nothing down here at all!!!!!!

shabbatheGreek Mon 21-Jan-13 12:45:23

Tom was home at 11 minutes past 9!!! They lied when I rang - they said that all the teachers had managed to get in so I should send Tom.....he said only about 20 teachers managed to get there!!!

The latest news on the school Facebook page is that ALL children taking their Science GCSE exam tomorrow have to go in even if school is closed to the rest of the pupils. There are about 20 kids doing the exam, including my lad. Not happy, not happy at all........what makes it safer for the ones taking exams to walk up the really steep hill to school???

Found you All.
Snow day here, as well, 2 very happy boys been out most of the day playing, with a brief interlude for lunch and a change of clothes from shopping wet to dry, yet more washing for DH!grin

Trips - sad about the girl opposite your mums. Here a 76yr old found dead in his driveway 2 villages away, thought to have fallen whilst shoveling his driveway, poor man.
Stabs, how can they be so disorganised! The boys High School put it on their website first thing this morning that school was closed except for exam students.

My legs are aching so much this morning. On the plus side I have lost about a stone now though. Didn't want to get out of bed this morning though <yawn>

mm, 4 stone to go now! <sob>

I bought new scales, and found out I was even heavier than I thought, but never mind, I'm making progress.

Chopstheduck Tue 22-Jan-13 07:28:25

Just seen the story of that girl in Deal, poor girl! What an awful thing to happen.

Morning/afternoon/evening. Snatching a couple of minutes peace to locate my sanity (screaming twins, crazy 2yo and stroppy 4yo).

That's so sad about those two people hmm. I love snow but its when you hear things like that, you realise how dangerous it can be.

Well Jennifer's physio appointment came through. The week after we come back from centre parks. We also have the HV coming that weeks too. James decided to throw his dinner at the wall yesterday. Lunch today was a quarter sandwich and two mince pies. I'm at the bare threaded end of my rope with him and have to walk away as I fear I could hurt him at times sad. There's a 'raising boys' course running at the end of next month at one of the sure start centres so I've booked myself on it. Figured its free and I've got nothing to lose!

Joshua and Jennifer are being truly delightful on the whole. Joshua is into everything and I'm thinking of entering Jennifer into a gurning competition. She doesn't half pull some faces.

Hot chocolate and floaty marshmallows all round as its bloody freezing here.

Soks Great you have had news about physio, at least its not too long to wait, and I am glad you are enjoying the twins at least! Well done for the proactive idea of attending the parenting course, we are also looking to go on one, for raising teenagers. I think that we need the help at the moment, as J has been hard work of late. Mind you, have had a serious talk with him, as he has been getting in trouble at school too, and we have hopefully, got to the bottom of some of the issues. It seems that he has been trying to be all things to all people in his new class, and, in order to try and be popular, has told some lies about his homelife and past, and now he has been found out! Some of his class mates have call his bluff on some of the stories, and are making fun of him because of it. I have advised him to tell the truth and let them know it was because he was afraid he wouldnt be liked for who and what he is. He did this today, and his friends have said they like him when he isnt lying. A big lesson learned I think. It must be hard when before you were automaticly the centre of attention because of the novelty of being an ID twin, and now he is just seen as a singleton by many.sad He is also having trouble getting his head around the idea that homework is about independant learning, not just going over what you have learned in the classroom.wink
Ruby and Shabs not Stabs!! grin blooming tablet spellchecker. How did your respective DS cope with the exam, well I hope.
Chops - Well done you! fantastic result so far, keep it up!
I had my first plaster removed and sutures taken out today, I have wounds both sides of ankle and on my heel, as well as on my hip, so a lot of sutures to be removed. Unfortunatly, both ones on my ankle have a little necrotic area,sad so I have been put in a new (pink) baycaste, but with windows cut in both sides so they can get at the areas and re-dress them a couple of time a week. I hope this is the first and only setback. Putting the new caste on was agony, as they had to push and hold the ankle into the correct position as they plastered, R got quite upset with them as it caused so much pain, but I understood why it had to be done, thank God for the Gas n Air I was given.grin

Morning girls

soks, that is quick for the appointment, great news!

bubby, poor J! Hopefully he has learned his lesson from it. Were they in the same classes through primary school then? I found mine did a lot better once they were separated, though unfortunately dt2 has the reputation as the annoying, naughty one that no one wants to play with. DT1 is going from strength to strength, sporty, musical and popular! He has finally started playing more with boys, but also has THREE gfs blushgrin
Owwwy with the ankle, hope it is more straightforward now. It must be progress though, even if it is painful. Soon be up and about!

We've had MORE snow here. sad

Tom seemed to do OK with the GCSE - came home very laid back but with the sole of his shoe hanging off!!! Cant wait to go and get him ANOTHER pair of school shoes <<sarcastic face>>

Chopstheduck Wed 23-Jan-13 09:09:09

aw, shabs, at least the exam went ok. Mine go thru school shoes like nothing else, especially Jack. I invested in some start rite for the boys this year. Really thick leather, gave dt1 blisters first week but they are lasting! Got them cheap from eBay, think they were an old line.

shabbatheGreek Wed 23-Jan-13 09:15:59

Tom has the weirdest feet ever!! (sadly he inherited them from me). IF I could afford Clarkes he would only be in about a 5 but the widest fitting. He also doesn't like any of their styles. Every term we go down to our local 'bargain bucket type' shoe shop in town. He walks straight in picks up the same style shoe.....they fit him perfectly and cost £9.99 ha ha ha ha ha ha. Slip on plain black shoes. They always last him the term but they are not very equipped for all this snow we have had!!!
