Lydia didn't make school this morning as the hill was impassable. By lunchtime and with some help from a shovel it was 'proceed with caution'. So we did. Dropped mad'moiselle off at school and hit the supermarché. Lots of tooth sucking and oohing to be heard in the shops, the French (like the English) can talk weather to death.
I'm a bad Mum because there were only two kids from the class who made it in. I made up for it by giving out some mucking out duties and then we played in the school with Peanut pone. I think I'm forgiven.
Afterwards I took Chapsi down to the school and we did some free work. He was a good lad and only slightly distracted by sounds of screaming as Lydia and her two little boy friends hurtled down the hill on their sledges.
