Helen and Jamie are away in Paris until tomorrow so I am at home with Edith and Tom. The day started badly as we missed Edith's ballet. We got ready a bit late but we're out the door before I realised we had a weeks worth of frozen snow crusted onto the windscreen. Ballet starts at 09:20 at and 09:20 I was still chipping away and had only cleared about 10x10cms. Edith was not happy. Then we all sithered and slipped our way down to the bike shop where I took the plunge and bought a replacement bike.
After lunch we walked down to the park. I took the PhilNTeds so Edith could ride in the slippy bits. Unfortuntly she feel asleep. First I knew about it was when I noticed her head resting on the buggy mudguard. So then I made her walk all the way to the museum to keep her awake. When we got there, the buggers had closed two hours early because of the 'adverse conditions'. Standing in the bright sunlight, with clear skys, thawing snow and clear roads I couldn't quite see what they were talking about.
We made it home okay and it was a pretty good day. Tom was jolly and Edith was good company. When she's being good, which is most of the time, she is joy to be with. I love the way she is so cheeky. She is a great wind up merchant.
i finished the day off with a thai takeaway. Now I feel too full and generally fat.
It was fun!
