Snow Day – 17 December 2009


Snow on my roadAfter last night’s heavy sprinkling of snow, my street looked like this in the morning. As soon as I woke up, I got dressed into suitable clothing, and went outside.

Soon, my brother and sister followed, and started to make an igloo. I kept checking my school’s website, trying to see if it was on.

At 7:30ish, I discovered through Facebook that it was. But I didn’t really care, as I was quite looking forward to the last three and a half hours of Noughtie’s education. Only hald of the school’s member’s had ‘managed to turn up’ (or just bothered to turn up…). But after a massive snowball fight on the field, and a tiny celebration assembly, we went home at 12:30 as it was the end of term.Lunch as Esimos - Harriet and Matthew enjoying their lunch

When I got home. I was impressed to see my brother and sister’s igloo. They even had lunch in it! Here’s a picture, if you’re interested. >

It was then that I started decorating my room. However, before I could put any lights up I must first tidy it. This took quite a long time (say three hours…), but I did give it a proper clean; vacuuming up massive dust clusters, picking up bits of paper etc.

I don’t think I actually started decorating as such until I got back from Scouts. The Scout’s ‘Christmas party’ turned out to be a bit poor, but alas, never mind. It was the start of the Christmas holidays….

But, at last, I made a start on the lights, and didn’t go to bed until 2am-ish.
