The schools are all closed today but the kids don't care, they're out playing in the snow or sitting by the fire and watching dvd's.
It blew in making a noise like a freight train or maybe even a jet airliner on Saturday afternoon, while we were preparing for my eldest grand daughter's 21st birthday. I wondered whether they would have to put it off but no, the weather behaved long enough to drive into town and celebrate, even though some of us had to get ready in the dark. It also stayed relatively calm on Sunday, long enough for eldest grandson and his partner to get on the road and head home but it followed them up the island. It was blinking cold the whole time though, a bit of a shock really as last winter was really quite mild.

Last of all I want to show you a picture of the shoes Monica was given for her birthday, from her boyfriend. Very blingy, though it doesn't really do them justice. I love them. I'd probably fall off them these days. Aren't they gorgeous?
