Still got some snow!

These were all taken last week here in town. We've got even more snow out at the cottage, but this week has been much warmer and there isn't so much snow left. Snowdrops and crocus are pushing their way through, and an Englishman who lives here has changed into his shorts for the summer. We don't usually have a very long Spring, we seem to go straight from Winter into Summer.

Not so wild

This is me on my way home after a night out with my baby sister and her girlfriends in London. It might have been even wilder if the pub hadn't closed at 11.30, the Vodka Bar had already closed by the time we got there at around midnight and my sister and her friends were all tucked in by 4. Having nobody left to play with I tottered off too. I woke at 8 almost fit for fight, just needed a few cups of tea and a small bit of toast and then it was back to Heathrow where everything was delayed because of the snow.
I did feel a bit wobbley on the way, the lights were rather bright and it felt like there was a plane just above my head, but it was worth it. I managed to squeeze a lot in to one weekend: fish and chips, shopping, steak and ale pie, a win on the National (Comply or Die), had my hair done and met up with all my sisters. On a global scale it perhaps wasn't so good, but it did me a world of good. Thank you baby sister, I hope your boss and your best friend are still talking to you, and thank you middle sister for taking such good care of me, and thank you big sister for keeping me in order.

Why is it that children choose to throw up in bed at the same time as the washing machine
decides to break down?

Will be back for more soon, new washing machine expected tomorrow.

Sending love

Miss T. and I held up the skiing traffic on this bridge up in the mountains trying to make a heart shape between us. She's already almost as tall as I am and we can wear the same shoes.
I am having a weekend away this weekend. It's the first time I've left them, and they can't wait for me to go, which makes it easier for me.
I'll be back late Sunday evening.
