Let it snow, let it snow, let it snow....

Let it snow!It's clearing up. Bugger. It's Tennis Club at our place tonight. God knows how many children of varying ages will be there... I'm already being lobbied to take as many as can be persuaded on the dog walk tonight. Horrors.

It started to rain earlier & the near future, paradoxically, suddenly looked a little sunnier. But now it's cleared up.

The problem is, all the older kids think it's too uncool to do the dog walk, so the girls congregate in M's room, listen to music, and presumably talk about the older boys, who are gathered downstairs either playing James Bond, or Crash Bandicoot on the Playstation, or watching The Matrix, or whatever else they can find - especially the ones who don't have a TV, and only watch worthy "classic" fare on DVD on their parents Imac (these kids have a most excellent knowledge of all Alfred Hitchcock's movies, even the minor ones - I'm impressed).

So that leaves me with the toddlers & the social misfits. And it really sucks taking them for a walk. They're slow & demanding. And it gets dark so early there's always a chance I won't manage to bring all of them home again (it's a bad look).

So... let's get the weather on my side here, I want either a major rainstorm at around 5.30pm, or to really seal it, let it snow...
