Snow Day!

Hurray! It has snowed here!!! Yesterday was a snow day and school was called off, so after my 7.00am call from the school I got up, and the BF and I went to the park with Joe and threw snowballs at him! Silly dog thought they were balls and kept trying to catch them! He loved it! We threw snowballs at the neighbours children whilst they made snowmen! I love the snow - the first day of a snowfall is wonderful - it makes everything seem so pure and clean. I went back to school today and the students all told me how they went and built snowmen and had snowball fights on the Racecourse. Some of them have never seen snow before - some of the younger Malaysian ones. I was quite productive - I made some stuff for a Celtic swap I'm doing, reconned a tee and a skirt and repaired a bag :-)

The main thing about the BF being made redundant (after the lack of money, obviously) is that he is always around - my routine has been disrupted - I have been used to him leaving the house at 5.45am and returning at about 2.15pm. Now he is here all the time. I don't resent him being here, but I do resent the lack of solice, if that makes sense. I get no time to myself and I always have to wear the supportive positive face, when all I want to do is shout, swear or hide.

Joe has had some problems with peeling lips recently - I think he has overdone it on a bone, piggy! We'll keep an eye on him and see whether he needs to go to the vets. I received a couple of cat toy balls as part of a swap, Pippin loves them, the others haven't had a chance yet! *lol*
