The Isle of Man ground to a halt in the early hours of the morning today. Two of the three main routes were closed by a heavy fall of snow and the one remaining road is now partially blocked by abandoned vehicles! The only people who made it to work are those who were close enough and brave enough to walk in.
So my Hunney is sat here with me on his birthday,
But I have to go in to work in about an hour! :-(
The police are advising people to stay at home if possible,
All the schools are closed and there is more on the way. Just looking in at the news on the Beeb, we got it quite lightly!! Even Africa is shivering!
I hope you're all warm and dry.
I managed to get in an hour of stitching last night, I've now completed all of Gail Pans Christmas Wishes. :-) I had planned to get them made into a top today, but having Tony home put a spanner in that idea. I also plan to get another of last years Block a Month projects out and try to complete it before January is ended! Oh! And I need to go shopping for some batting.
1) It's not raining.
2) The heating works
3) Extra time with my Husband.

I am lucky enough to be able to have some flexibility in my work pattern, as since it's 16 miles to work, I can't walk there! Hoping the weather either clears up or gets too bad to contemplate travel by Monday!
