    Have you all woken up to a white world? We got up to a very disappointing thin layer of snow this morning, my DD said the weathermen were lying again cos they promised about 6 inches! However, it hasn't yet stopped snowing so the covering is now looking a lot more substantial.

    I'm absolutely freezing and have got plenty of layers on this morning. i'm not sure if I'll got out and walk the dog or not, I don't mind if it stops snowing and I can wrap up warm but I don't want to go out whilst it's still snowing and get all wet. Skye, my dog, is not looking very interested at the moment either, she's curled up fast asleep on my bed, I may just be using the treadmill today to get my steps up.

    Have a good day and I hope the weather doesn't cause anyone too many problems.

    Yes a sprinkling here too MD. But it is still falling.

    Was quite envious of Mizzy and Dizzy all tucked up with their family today!

    Hope Karen1972 got down to London from Wales today ok - and gets back ok tonight.

    I have nothing in my calendar today - so having a slouch day!!

    Snow? Snow? What's that then. Don't seem to get snow down here.

    Okay...maybe a tiny bit of slushy stuff just outside the door every 10 years. Kids call it snow, but then they don't remember the good old days when we had real snow. 1963 wasn't it?

    I am staying home in the warm today, stay safe anyone venturing out today !!

    Whereabouts are you then Karion, not to have much snow. We don't usually get loads here, much to my daughter's annoyance, got more when I lived in South Wales.

    Don't blame you for the slouchy day Bev, I think I'll be doing the same. I was going to go to Pets at Home, but it can wait till tomorrow.

    Its only been snowing for an hour here in South Lincolnshire - so Kids have gone to school - trouble is the 1/2 hour drive - just deliberating whether to go for them at lunchtime - light the wood burner and snuggle up or do the ironing!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    Replies on a postcard please!

    Still snowing here. :) About 3 or 4 inches I should think but I don't think it will last long. We used to live in Ottawa and so have got our big box of snow pants and stuff out the attic just seeing what fits who and then gonna brave it before it all disappears. Will try to take some pics but Mizzy has left his £800 digital camera at work!:eek:

    We have a lovely snowman in the garden and have just come back from the downs were all the children are tobogganing. It's so picturesque it's lovely. Back home now and heating up the butternut soup. The snow is falling heavily again now.
