We made the ambitious decision work this week as well as try to juggle half term with a few days off between us. We were meant to have days out with some pottering about and a trip out to the zoo. As plans sometimes go, it didn’t actually work out like that. We had a huge snowfall on the Sunday night which meant the zoo got cancelled and we had some snowman fun instead.
Our local park is always lovely and quiet and so we pretty much had most of the freshly fallen snow to ourselves. We weren’t prepared at all though so our poor snowman had to go without a carrot nose or stoney smile and instead, ended up looking a tiny bit creepy. Z wasn’t too bothered though and we enjoyed a very fresh and freezing morning out in it all.
Thankfully the snow all melted away that night in time for the next day to go to work and get my car off the drive.
The rest of our week consisted of juggling the boys between different houses which filled me with mothers guilt. The boys had a brilliant time with both sets of grandparents so I think it’s been a successful half term. It’s always a bit pants feeling like you have to ration your leave across the year but it did have me planning easter holidays so that we can have a “proper break” together. Now if the sunshine could just come out properly then I can start looking forward to Spring!
