Biggest snowfall for 18 years (T)

Others will no doubt blog better and longer about it, but the short version is that today we had the biggest snowfall in London for 18 years! Really thick on the ground, see sam and beccas blog for some more pics. This picture is of our church, en route to school (which as it happened, was shut due to the weather).

Sunday morning TV (T)

A nice lazy Sunday morning with the 3 boys, we watched the cricket (live from Perth) and the men's tennis final (live from Melbourne). When these palled, I put on some old 'top gear' specials, featuring races between cars and aeroplanes, plus the one where they try to build a space shuttle. The space shuttle works remarkably well, the takeoff is a success, but the final fuel pod remains attached to the 'shuttle' (a little car) and so the whole thing crashes to earth. At the end, Eddie said he wanted to watch it again, and that this time "he hoped that the space shuttle would come off properly". Now he's come back again because another episode finishes prematurely (it's just a preview). "God should have made it a bit longer" was his first thought.
