Number 2 son wasn't too happy when his school closed on Monday and then announced it would be sending a day's worth of work out by email to all students by 10am! Strangely enough their internet connection went down at 9.50am and could not be restored all day..... I'm picturing a small person with some wire cutters, aren't you??
We went for a couple of walks, one during the day with a load of kids (looking like the pied piper) and then a quick walk to the pub one evening for me & the builder. We only ever go to the pub (and hardly ever our local one) in the summer after a cricket match and even then it's quite rare. It took us about half an hour to get there and we sat in front of a log fire with mugs of coffee then walked home - we are such party animals!
I thought I'd include a few pics of the daytime walk, I know I've seen hundreds of snowy blogs this week but everyone has the prettiest pictures and the snow won't last for long.

|pretty cottage in the village|
|some of the river surface frozen - not a great day for a boating holiday!|
And finally the latest member of the family cricket team, sadly I don't think he'll stay around for the start of the season!
I like the idea of heading to the crease with a bottle in one hand and a bat in the other, well maybe I could do with out the bat.... and heading to the crease!
