And that is just what happened we woke up to snow in Derby yesterday and it’s been cold ever since. In fact it was –9oC in Derby this morning. Our house was pretty chilly too as when we got out of bed, the heating for some strange reason hadn’t come on after a re set of the heating dial, luckily it was all systems go & the heating came on. Phew!! It reminded me of my child hood when it would be freezing in the house and we used wake up to have ice on the inside of the windows and the only heating we had was an open fire in the lounge and dinning room. So until that was lit and got going it would be cold and I mean cold!!! I bet there are loads of people out in blog land that can remember those days?
Yesterday Joe and I went to the garden centre at Little Eaton with Emily and Cameron and what a wicked time we had. They loved all the Christmas decorations, the fishes and the small animals there are there. They went a saw Santa which was lovely as it wasn’t busy so they were able to spend time talking to Santa. The entrance path that led to Santa’s Grotto had Christmas trees either side covered in real snow which made it look so magical. Emily talked to Santa but stood beside grandad whilst Cameron sat on the stool beside him. Both told him what they would like for Christmas. Emily a Peppa Pig and Cameron, Captain, Ferdinand and Bish and Bash from Thomas. It was just magical being there with them. It took me right back to when Samantha & Matthew were small. What made it even better was that when we went we had no idea Santa would be there so it was a surprise for us all.
Well this afternoon I’m catching up with Midsomer murders whilst making a wedding card order, sitting in the warm!!!
