#1 How to survive a snow day

I'll be perfectly honest. I know we were all warned about the approaching arctic like conditions but I was sure that we would have school today, things would worsen overnight and we would have snow days on Thursday and Friday. Boy was I was wrong!

I woke up to find I had been transported to Narnia in the middle of the night.

.There's my poor wee shed that hasn't yet recovered from Storm Ophelia.

I got up and waited anxiously for the text.
Ping!
School closed! Yipee!
So did I go back to bed? Hell no, I was up so there was no point.

So what exactly does a singleton do all day when confined to her house ? Well I was actually very productive.
#1: I wrote 784 words for my college assignment!
#2: Tidied my bedroom, including under the bed. Unheard of.
#3: Did a workout with Karl Henry, which not only toned me up but warmed me up!


#4: I then decided to walk the 2 and a half km to Raharney while the going was good. I won't be able to do it tomorrow when Storm Emma arrives.
It really was a fabulous day once I wrapped up well.



#5: Once home I put my Op Tran training to good use and I cooked a batchload of dinners to last me for the next few days, if, God forbid, it's as bad as they say its going to be.


#6: After all that, it was time to put my feet up in front of the telly, with a nice glass of wine ( which had bought on the expedition to Raharney earlier) and watch the finale of this year's Operation transformation. This year's leaders were fantastic and a real inspiration.
And the good news is, that if they're snowed in, in two years time, they will know exactly how to cope!
