Yes my icicles melted, and I'm cross as I used it as a reason to stop kids going out for a cigarette...why do they all smoke?

My eldest cousin died last November and my new oldest cousin who is twenty years my senior has had a stroke, cousin next in line says she is declining it and wants none of it as she is sure it is a death sentence in waiting !

Oh. lost it...I said enjoy your time and do all the things you wanted with the time and peace you got.
My kids are all home, my daughter we picked up from train and our car handled well.

My trip round was quiet and uneventful

Apart from the teenager being frantic because her boyfriend had arrived early, and was marooned with my ex....

Take your survival kit Will for if you have to Kip in the car scenario!

I've just had a contact from my daughter Birmingham the social workers and disabled have been told go home early but my daughter has to stay till after 4, buses are stopping now and she asked if we can travel the 11 miles to fetch her and the other is saying can we fetch her the 8 miles in the opposite direction, all on gridlocked roads where traffic is taking 2-3 hours to travel 2 miles!

Does it have traction control... I find that helps. ;-) If it does, take her, get your evening's quiet and with any luck an extra night of quiet when she gets snowed in at her Mum's.

Is your vehicle any good in snow? Safely!

Can't say I blame her Will, and you get some self time but weigh it up with safety travelling. Is there any other way bar you and car?

It wasn't more than four or five inches, but it's still falling.

And the teenager is agitating hard to be taken to her mother's house. Not to see her mother: her boyfriend is being delivered by his parents later today.

Congratulations, MTM! Talk about turning up the Winning an award, any award is extra special, super fine and, when the award is also deserved...well, that calls for a superlative that I've no idea how to spell! Seriously, well done... ;o)

Not just her.

I treasure my 2 evenings of peace and quiet.

Prepare her for the worst and disappointment then Will as it was a dirty red spot on your house and said 20cm...or was it inches:)

In reply to an earlier post on 17 Jan 2013 21:47:58 GMT
Nothing yet here.

The teenager is conflicted: if we get loads of snow she will miss school - and miss he boyfriend at her mother's in the evening.

Congrats then MTM...I didn't know of them. Pleased for you:)

We have an inch of snow stuck already but seeing that we aren't supposed to get this till early hours well...

The Wrong Stuff was voted the fantasy read of 2012 by it's here but you have to spool down to the bottom of the page.

McOther and I share the cooking we both love food so we're not bad cooks. We're a bit... well yucky meal is a wasted opportunity.

I know Will, and I have made nice sauces just by putting tinned soup to meat veg and casseroling it. I think it is the preparation of salads and veg that everyone in this family dislikes. I have it that I can do a pound of sprouts and potatoes in a few minutes. Just can't motivate the others, and after so many years as head cook honcho I want a night or two off a week.

In reply to an earlier post on 17 Jan 2013 16:24:12 GMT

way too many people think basic cooking is hard, when it isn't...

But I can excel myself occasionally if I try...(a casserole is not trying hard, lets be honest)

MTM why didn't I marry a man like Will...casserole! I will not denigrate my OH but to say food and cooking is not his chosen forte. Trouble is mine neither from choice. I have a working relationship with him and cooking. I do alternative days and virtually all Sundays. He thinks if it comes in a Kipling or such wrapper it is a meal...or take away or eat out.

Intrusive...better than wishing for intrusion...never happy we folk are we:)

MTM, what did I read about an award on Linked weren't exactly clear. In fact I know more about your undies and sex life :)

Posted on 17 Jan 2013 15:58:28 GMT
And you two made me think.

A quick trip to tje fridge revealed some tired looking veg, so there's a casserole in the oven now for tonight.

I can't wait to hear the complaints

Wait until he's a teenager and he becomes intrusive as well as tiring...
