Two already!

It only seems like yesterday that I was posting about the arrival of my niece and now look at her.
Hasn't she grown?
And now she has reached that milestone of a birthday, two, there is no stopping her!

Time on my hands...

meant time to tighten my hair. Whilst I had enjoyed playing in the snow yesterday, I was happy to stay in the warmth today tightening my hair. Actually, I had started this on Sunday with the back and I did a little yesterday after building the snowman, but overall I spent far less time on getting in done than on previous occasions. I guesstimate that it took me about 8 hours to complete, having taken up to twice that before. I think that I was helped by the fact that it is less than five weeks since I last did it; I have been going eight weeks or so between sorting my roots. (Note to self - regular sessions=less work!)
I love the way that my hair sits when it's been done.

Snow Day

Yesterday I crossed my fingers for snow, not enough to cause destruction, but enough to cause a day off work. I wasn't completely surprised to wake this morning and find a blanket of snow covering everything, it had been forecast over a week ago; but the forecasters don't always get it right, do they?
I have a policy of not driving in these conditions if I can help it and called upon the services of The HoF who lives close to me. I was hoping that he would take my suggestion to call work and say we couldn't get in, but he insisted on picking me up and driving in. To cut a long story short, we didn't make it very far; driving at two miles per hour in thick snow seemed to help him make sense of the situation. I was back home and playing in the snow in no time. At about the same time I discovered that my school had been shut and I needn't have bothered trying to get there in the first place!
Me and my Sons had a snowball fight and built a snowman, although I was only able to stay outside for periods of ten minutes before needing to defrost myself inside. Our efforts were rewarded when we found out that our respective schools will be closed tomorrow too. Just what are we going to do!
