Snow aargh it took me 10 minutes just to get off my drive :o I stupidly drove on it forwards so trying to reverse through 4 " of snow in a rear wheel drive was a totally nightmare. Once off there I was fine unitl i got to work and had to go up the steep hill that was like sheet ice :x I am not looking forward to making the journey home :(

Send all snow to Malaysia and Milton Keynes I say :lol:

Well it started snowing at 1am here and we had a nice covering of snow.. and its started snowing again 10mins ago and is relatively heavy! I love snow! I'm such a kid. :P
I wish my mum wasnt working until 9pm tonight as I would love to get over to Campbell Park for some photos but need the car.

Well, we've had plenty of snow. Looks great, but is a complete pain for travelling. Wish it'd held off until Christmas day (when I don't need to leave the house!) - it will probably have cleared up by then. My boyfriend is driving to Norfolk right now, I am a bit worried about him driving in these conditions :(

PS: Only 4 more sleeps to go!

:lol: I left a note on my daughters bed this morning saying only 4 more sleeps to go

The snow has now turned more like ice sheets everywhere and with the temperature set to stay the way it is I can't see it clearing up until after xmas :x

But it's the solstice today, so that's something to be cheerful about :D

Hip, hip, hurray! =D>

Well, today is my last day at work folks, so unless I get bored tomorrow whilst I'm doing university work (quite likely!), I probably won't post again until after Xmas and possibly New Year, so just wanted to wish everyone a Merry Christmas and happy New Year.

PS: When are we going to have a PP Christmas party? haha.
