Enjoying a day off

Now I know there are plenty of people for whom the current snowy weather is a disaster but chez PM the mood is very much sunny optimism. Lapin and Bounce are full of the joys of an unexpected day off from school and heady anticipation of sledging with friends.

By some rare miracle I am also prepared - last year we bought some sledges (and I know exactly where they are) and we have more than enough thermals and waterproofs to keep everyone snug for hours. Which is lucky - we are out twice in the day and the second time do not come back until it is really dark. Everyone's faces are glowing with that reddish chill and their eyes are alight with excitement.

Even better, school is already cancelled tomorrow so there is promise of even more fun to come. Bring it on.
