Snow Snow go away !

I know, I sound like a right bah humbug but really .... this snow is not good news. The children have been off school for 2 days now because of the snow, I've got orders coming out of my ears and I haven't even started my Christmas shopping !

I was hoping for a flying visit to Bluewater today to try and at least get some shopping done, but with the children off school, it just wasn't going to happen.
And the other Christmas Shopping problem I face is that my 2 break up from school next Thursday ! Arghhhhh - what to do ??!!

There is, however, a little ray of hopefulness on the horizon. The Parents Association at school have organised a coach trip up to Harrods for the day on Saturday (weather permitting of course !) Now, there is absolutely no way on this earth that I will be Christmas shopping in Harrods but there are rather a lot of other lovely shops that I can visit and hopefully do some Christmas shopping in. The plan was that we would mooch around Harrods for a couple of hours, then go and get a lovely lunch somewhere and then window shop and look at all the lovely Christmas lights and displays. However, with me still needing to buy presents for virtually everyone, I fear a mad Christmas Shopping Trolley Dash is on the cards for Saturday. Never mind, I'm sure we'll have a lovely day whatever we end up doing !

Look at those icicles on our garages !!

In the meantime, my Paypal account will be taking a hammering with, I've no doubt, purchases from Etsy, Folksy and Dawanda .... and many of the other lovely handmade websites I have bookmarked ! If you sell through any of these channels ... look out - I could be visiting you very soon !

PS. For anyone awaiting my felty delivery, I'm keeping my fingers crossed that it will be here sometime next week

Stay warm
