There's No Business Like Snow Business!

Thought I would update you all on the snow situation...
Before I went to bed, last night, we had 7 inches!  We had just had a massive downfall of snow.  Michael and I had been to Asda to get some milk, butter, general nibbles, etc because the snow was getting worse and we thought we wouldn't be able to get out for a few days and on our way back the snow was coming down SO heavily.  It was like a blizzard- I've never had to drive at 25mph on a motorway before!

I know I sound as though I'm making a big deal out of having snow in November but it is quite unusual for where I live.  With the exception of last year, we never have really big snow like this.  I live next to the sea in North East England so its always hard for snow to lie here and when we get snow its never usually this thick, again with the exception of last year, and it doesn't hang around for this long.

This morning I've woken up to 9 inches of snow and its still snowing even now. I cannot believe it!  Michael is off work too so we've had a long lie in and then enjoyed some sausage and bacon sarnies. Yum, perfect for a day like today.  Ive taken a couple of piccies of the snow this morning for you all too.
Apparently the snow is here to stay for 2 weeks- great! Not.  Perhaps tomorrow ill be writing about being completely snowed in!  Still, at least I'm warm.  We've had the heating on all day for the past 2 days.  Clearly, my dad is going to thoroughly enjoy receiving the heating bill this quarter!

I know I sound like I'm moaning, but I'm still poorly.  Just had some Pepto Bismol.  God its awful.  Its like drinking chalk. Eurgh.  But on a happier note, my mum and I have just booked up to go to see Calendar Girls at the Empire theatre in March. So excited, i love the film and have heard great things about the stage show!

Is there much snow where you live?
Have you got any ideas for something we can do while we're stuck indoors? We've already made it through 3 Christmas films and all of our Virgin plus one recorded programmes!
