It's snowing! Hurrah! We may have a white Christmas.
Spent today down at my lovely Mum's house, which was very pleasant, despite everyone still coughing. We sounded like a Fourteenth Century peasant re-enactment group* as we walked through town, hacking and spluttering. Also popped in and visited Youngest Sis and family, including their two new dogs, both mental Jack Russells, but very appealing with it.
We chickened out and left Sussex a bit earlier than planned, as the weather was closing in. I am jolly glad we did. By the time we got to Southampton the rain had turned to sleet, by the time we left the M27 (look on a map, American readers) it was snowing hard, and getting foggy. Nice combination. We arrived home about 6-ish, it kept snowing heavily for about three hours, and has settled. Or "pitched" as the locals might say. Well, the locals I worked with in Bath, anyway.
If it freezes overnight it will be a bit hairy driving around tomorrow, but other than a trip to the supermarket for provisions, we are pretty much set now. If it is still nice and snowy tomorrow, I suspect more snow animals could be in the offing.
I have not put a tree up this year. We** got all the decorations down from the attic, and then decided neither of us really felt much like doing a tree, so we have put up a few little bits, and the rest is still in the box. I might relent and put the tree up but if not, it doesn't matter. We are spending Christmas at home, just the two of us, for I think the first time in 8 years, and as a result we are doing as we please. Which means being a bit lazy, it seems.
I might make some sausage rolls tomorrow. I might not. Ha!
I like being a grown-up.
*Well, what I imagine such a group would sound like. Singing Gaudete and spitting a lot.
**Mr WithaY did. I don't do ladders due to my mighty bulk, and fear of falling.
