eight squishy bananas and rub-a-dub-dub

Ma dug herself out this morning and made a cautious trip to the village three miles away to buy animal feed and some shopping. She then came up the main road, cautiously turned off through our little village and met B at the bottom of our drive with some bits for us. So we are now pretty much okay if we have any more snow. There are showers forecast on Sunday and Monday, so we will see.

We can't get the car out - not without digging between eight inches and a foot of snow off the quarter mile of drive. Yesterday we went for a walk in the morning - the snow was beautiful in the sun and Leo was delighted with it. He is frightened to walk on his own in the snow - not surprising because it comes up to his knees - so it's a bit tiring for everyone. He and B made a snowman and a snow Thomas, not much hampered by that, though.

This afternoon - looking for Rub-a-dub-dub, three men in a tub online to download for Leo, who had been running round yelling it for hours.

Now - warm banana muffins and a glass of red wine. And an early night, I think.

And that is all.


  1. Glad to have you back at ducking for apples. It feels more comfortable.

  2. There is an award over at mine for you :-)
