    Its about to really come down here!

    Its one of my gorgeous mindees parties 3:30pm-5:30pm and its about 5 miles away!

    Luckily I have a Landrover, so am crossing fingers that all will be ok. I hope it doesnt start until afet the party otherwise people might not bother going.

    I really dont like snow - its the after effects of us trying to get pushchairs across frozen snow!

    I was hoping it would hold off til half term so we could enjoy it rather than struggling with school runs. Not bad here just now , contemplating going food shopping but worried it may come down fast once we are out!

    I'm gutted as I've had to change my dinner plans now. I was s looking forward to meeting up with a friend too, but not worth the risk of driving in it just for dinner and a gossip. Hang on maybe it is

    Its just started here and I'm very glad hubby has just got safely home from Ipswich. We have a bad weather policy that states we will not do school runs in the snow, so if its still here on Monday I will work with the mindees that get to me, because I won't be going anywhere

    Been snowing here now for about 4 hours - settling well

    Now I have to make a decission - one mindee here - I am supposed to be taking her home (only about 2 miles) in about 1 hour to put to bed and then babysit until 9:45 whern mum is due home.

    I am worried that I won't get to mindees house and will be stuck in the cold with a 2 year old
    or

    I will get there but mum won't get home (she has a 25 mile ish journey)

    or mum gets home but then I can't get home.


    what to do

    DH says - don't bother trying - let mindee sleep here (not registered for over night care - but guess she can stay here if I don't change and because its an emergency)

    Oh flip - don't know what to do for best
