Today has been rough.

The last 24 hours have been somewhat challenging.

It started off yesterday with it trying to snow, there have been weather warnings for the past few days saying that there is a cold front coming in from Russia that is going to be causing problems in the near future.

So, this was it at about 2pm yesterday.

I picked up the little one from the childminders, and she was rather grumpy, due to being tired and when I got her home, she fell asleep in my arms within about 10 minutes. I took her upstairs put her to bed and came back down to make a cup of tea.

I had barely sat down with my cup when she was back up again crying.

This is pretty much how the rest of the night went.

On the weather front, the snow had arrived.


In total, I had about three hours sleep all night as she kept crying and having to get up with her.

There we were at 4am sitting in the dim light in the living room trying to get to sleep.

I had been sleeping in the worst position, and my neck was in agony.

So, off we went to bed, I just took the midget into bed with me and hugged her until we both went back to sleep.

This lasted all of 40 minutes. Then she was screaming, thrashing and kicking.

I was so tired that I didn’t really handle it well. The wife had text me to say that she was coming home because the snow had been so bad during the night all the buses had been cancelled so she couldn’t make it to work. Thus, the decision was made for her to work from home.

When she got back in, I had to go out. I needed a break, even if it was just for the time it took for me to drive to the local van and get a couple of rolls for breakfast.

Usually, this would have taken ten minutes but because of the snow it took more like 25, and I never got the car about 20mph.

That was the last time I went out today.

And here is the current forecast.


The snow has been steadily getting worse all day.

My mum popped in an got us some stuff from the shop usually that’s a five-minute drive from there to here took her 40 minutes.

My sister was also in earlier, she lives up the road, usually a 10.min drive. She left here at 12.30 got home at ten to 2.

Oh and around about 7pm there was also THUNDER AND LIGHTING in the middle of a blizzard.

I have only ever seen that once before in my life. It was bizarre.



The videos were taken about half an hour apart, and you can see the difference in that time.

And this one was taken ten minutes before I started writing this post. So it is only going to get worse.

Now to top it all off the little one is now choked with the cold, has got more teeth coming in, had been sick and is fighting sleep as if it was the enemy trying to kill her.

She is asleep at the moment but has been taken into bed with the wife, and I’m here writing this post.

This is going to be another long night.

Oh, something that amused me. The streetlight across the road from us has icicles growing from it that looks like Wolverines Claws, and they just keep growing.
