Snow! And Afternoon Tea.....

So, yes, it did snow! Enough to play in!

And enough to cause the maximum amount of disruption!
It would have been fine if we'd had the snow over the Christmas break. But, no; the weather waited until we at our most tired and run-down, trying to get back into the term-time routine; and THEN we got the cold weather!
Although, GrandDoug did come to take us all out for long walks, followed by afternoon tea at The Feathers
(Although the children cheated by having Hot Chocolate!)
The most beautiful sandwiches you EVER saw!
And the usual disagreement about whether the jam goes on the scone first with the cream on top, or cream with jam on top. It's a tricky one, and we usually have to have quite a few scones prepared both ways before we can make a decision! :-)

Cold, and getting colder! Brrrrrrrr!

The weather over Christmas was mostly mild and wet, but now it's getting colder. Sunday was cold but clear, so we went out on our scooters.

And we did lots of bouncing on the trampoline!
But it was -6 last night, and still -3 when we walked to school this morning.
It was funny not-quite-snowing. The moisture in the air was turning into little ice chips.

I don't feel like I've warmed up all day! Curry for dinner tonight! :-)

Stars in their eyes!

Happy New Year, everyone! Lang may all your Lums reek! 
I seem completely unable to take a picture of the children without red-eyes at the moment.

Wishing everyone a constructive and prosperous 2013!
