The snow has put a stop to the official school bus, and in any case the school has been closed to pupils every day this week. At least it has given her time to catch up on maths homework... though it has become one of those tasks which grows to fit the time available.
FL has been driving me to work this week, but this morning was really hard work. The snow plough hasn't been back since Saturday and another 5 inches fell last night, so we had to dig the car out... only for him to slide into the bank on the other side of the road trying to get over the rut in the middle.
I had to push him out, all the time saying "Let's just park and go back to the house..." but by the time we got the car out, it was easier to carry on up the road than to try to turn, so off to work we went.
As I write, the snow is battering off the skylight once again, and I can't imagine getting to the office tomorrow.
My knitting is proving to be such a comfort after cold hard trudges through knee-deep drifts.
This is FL's Rainbow Warrior hat - a Christmas "surprise", although he has seen me knitting it. I don't think he suspects - not in these colours!
I think I might stick it in the washing machine to felt it as it is turning out quite large and with a more open gauge than I would like.
Watch this space for a wild woolly FO!
