"Shovel,shovel where for art thou shovel?"
On the Pollyanna side...now it has turned into sleet & icy rain!
NH has shut down....no school, banks & PO are all closedEven Sir L who is dedicated drove 4 feet out onto the drive & had to admit defeat! It took 30 mins to get the car back in the garage!

Welcome home darling!

The final definition of frustration is receiving an e-mail from
Sir L by the Golden Gate bridge in the sun enjoying a latte!
I had better get shovelling!!!!

They mean spring is here! (Well in the UK anyway, definetly not in NH!)
Spring is the best time in the UK with daffodils, snowdrops, tulips & hyacinths everywhere. Fluffy cloudy sky's, cute baby lambs frolicking in the fields and green everywhere! Green hedges, green grass, green trees starting to bud and oh the blossoms that come in late spring are just gob smackingly gorgoeus! Oh yes I am homesick!!!!
Not to mention that today I woke up to a snow storm....oh yes the darling weather forecast was calling for snow flurries (not a worry in NH.)
At 6.30am the deal was a 2 hour snow delay for the kids.
By 8.30am no school today kids! What the heck?
Do these weather forecast folk ever get sacked or fired for getting so many peoples lives screwed up by a predicted mistake in the weather?
So I look longingly at my daffodils, clamp my eyes shut & I pretend that I am in the Lake District at home. Oh for Ambleside & its bubbly pubs, fresh air, superb hiking and the yummy Kendal mint cake, open toasty fireplace's, cream tea's & fudge! Hopefully in May I will get there!!
