Snow Day

I woke at about 7am this morning, with a pounding headache. Downing several cans of craft cider the night before will do that to you if you're not used to drinking any more. Snow had been forecast, and I couldn't be bothered to wipe away condensation on the bedroom window to take a look - …

Snow Day

The local schools closed one-by-one yesterday evening. The children are all home today - as am I. My other half hasn't been so lucky - she has walked to work at the local infant school, wrapped up like a polar explorer, oddly relishing the chance to get things done while the children are not there. …

Not Leaving the House

I'm "working" from home today.

I imagine a heated argument must have happened overnight, given the progress that's suddenly being made.The …

Home Already ?

I was supposed to be at the far end of the country all week. Given that I have been sick for the last two weeks, and was gradually getting worse, leaving in the first place was probably a┬ámistake.After not leaving the house all weekend, I set out at lunchtime on Monday with my usual bag …
