Miraculously I have managed to get some writing done! There was no scheming, no plotting, just a bit of snow and a snow day at school. School was closed and after my two kids finished cheering and dancing around the room they announced they were having a pyjama and movie day and could I please close the door and give them some peace and quiet. OF COURSE I CAN DO THAT!
All they need from me was the occasional morsel of food thrown their way, the customary cup of hot chocolate (an essential at the merest sniff of a snowflake) and that was me! Off the hook.
Admittedly, I was tempted by a PJ day and back to back Harry Potter, but I channelled my inner adult and skulked off to the back room, just me and my laptop, to re-visit my MS for the hundredth time.
Whoever would have thought I’d welcome the snow
