Seriously thought we might get away with no school, that it would close before we had to leave to get there, but 8am came and still no closures so we all got wrapped up for what should be a 15/20minute walk to school but with not being able to use the buggy and the adverse weather conditions we had to leave 10mins earlier than normal.
This was the calm before the storm…. Megan loves the snow at at this point it wasn’t coming down to bad so off we plodded to school. And managed to get there just in time. Megan did get upset once we got to school because she was cold and wet. But she stayed and went into class ok. Georgie bear however was an inconsolable mess of tears and stress over the heavy snow and walking(not even a lollipop helped🙈). And this was before we needed to start the walk back🙈 with georgies nursery being at the school I decided it was best to keep her at home once we got back,so I informed nursery which meant we only needed to get home then go back for Megan later in the day.
That’s when things started to go downhill🙈🙈 Snow was coming down hard and really blowing a blizzard and georgie just wasn’t happy. So a 15/20 minute journey took us nearly an hour (nightmare) my anxiety was kicking in big time because hubby was not near home and not to back till late so if school shut I had to walk georgie in it again.
Thankfully Georgie fell asleep when we got home so I then waited on the inevitable. Our lovely friends rang me to say they were going to collect their girls at 10.30am……panicking because Georgie was asleep and possibility of school closing said friends kindly offered to collect megan and walk her home.(my absolute hero’s) they know who they are and they did an amazing thing for me today. Saving me from more melt downs from the bear and another hour trip home from school especially as conditions had got worse.
Of course Megan thought it was great getting to leave school before they decided to close it at 1.30. And bonus she got to walk home with friends.
Finally our moomin was home, we’ve had a day of snuggles and movies before putting tea on low in the oven and going outside to have some snow fun for abit. Again megan loved this……
Georgie not so much……bless her heart to be quite honest she absolutely hated it.
Not impressed at all🤣
Hopefully with our busy weekend she will get used to it……first time they’ve both seen real proper snow and they will remember it which is amazing. And of course having a snow day off school and nursery and spending the day home with mummy they thought was fantastic. Apparently there’s more snow coming tomorrow and Sunday…….not that it’s stopped much today been blizzards on and off all day. Shame theres another 5days of school left weather dependent. Just hope we can get out to Winter festival and back over the weekend…..I’ll leave it here and put a few more pics before ending the blog….more posts to come next week after our busy weekend. I do need to get an elf update on.
