frosty friday

Grand Canyon (2009)

Snow is all around.  I've been doing the school run with the kiddos on the sledge (hard work, good exercise, but they love it).  Always a good excuse to make hot chocolate with whipped cream when we return from school and a good few cookies to go alongside.

This weekend will be hectic.  The usual judo and tennis lessons.  Lots of playing in the snow.  But also the excitement of Sinterklaas celebrations.  And even more importantly - my son's 8th birthday!  The presents will be piled high, and lots of cake and treats will be eaten.  Fun fun fun!

With all this fun planned, I may not even be here to share it all with my little family.   My mum is now very sick in hospital and although I'm booked on a flight Monday, I shall be trying to get there sooner if possible.  Hopefully the airports will be open and stranded passengers will be on their way again and I can fly sooner to be close to her.  Thinking of you every minute mum.

Wishing you a wonderful weekend, whatever you may be up to.

  6. hi - just read your friday post and saw your comment on my blog - I am sorry that your mum isn't doing well. I hope you can get over there - it looks a nightmare with the snow from what we have seen on the bbc website and in the paper here! I was going to call you quickly today and am just waiting until you are back from the school (sledge) run! we are 12 hours ahead of you in NZ. miss you very much too and you are in my thoughts.
    that shop was you all over, you would have loved it!
