The Day the Snow Arrived.

It snowed on Monday and the following day I took Nan home to Thurcroft and I stayed with her for a few days.
On Wednesday Nan went to the hospital to have her eye checked out. It was discovered that since her accident, there have been changes to her vision, so the treatment they were expecting to give wasn’t appropriate. Another appointment in five weeks to see the consultant was made.
 On the day I left to go home and see Charlotte in Newark (before the forecast snow arrived), David and Genya came in the evening to give her some company. 
Before leaving Newark, I had a fish and chip lunch with the family, read Lucas a couple of stories and then drove home with fingers crossed that the murky snow-laden skies didn’t release their payload.
We woke up on Thursday to heavy overnight snowfall. After breakfast, Sarah and I made a Cyberman snowman, then watched as Jamie tried to drive his car down the driveway. We told him he wouldn’t be able to do it, the snow was far too deep, but it didn’t stop him from trying. His low-profile wheels and lowered suspension (20cm) could not push their way through the snow. After half an hour of trying and with five of his friends helping to push, he had to admit defeat and walk with his snowboard to the hills outside Harborough.
Thoughtfully, during the week, Charlotte sent Sue a beautiful bunch of flowers to cheer her up after the bouts of illness she recently has been suffering from. One huge advantage of the snow was that neither Sue nor I have been called into school to cover for illness as they have been shut.
