Holy moly

Wowzers guys can you believe this weather, now i know lots of us say we love snow, and i think its lovely to look at and if not too deep for the kids to play in but c'mon its getting silly now, ive been housebound with a 20 month and 4 1/2 year old for 3 days now, and seriously we are all getting cabin fever.

Its drivin me NUTS to be honest, no school, no driving,no visits and complete boredom, i dont even have crafting as my sanctuary as my little ones dont let me, and wont sit down to do some with me.


Ok so rant over lol ill show you a few piccies x

Here is my bedroom view yesterday we have had few more inches since this pic was takenMy little lad felt the sudden urge to go down the slide still despite it havin about a foot of snow all over it, he thought it was fab but did have a cold bum at the bottom lol,

This crazy chappie is upto his knees in it lol
And my backyard, well what you can see of it anyhow.We have had at least another 5 inches since these pictures so even more friggin snow, when will this end
