I have decided to have all the family up to dinner..at different times because there are too many & i haven't the room (or the energy!!!) to have them all together....this is Simons wife Pam, her daughter Stacey & Charlie, (Stacey's boyfriend), & me... Simon is talking to Joe out of picture..will get them on another picture..the other kids are back at home, i will take them out to eat another day..I just wanted Pam & Sim to have a bit of a break..she works so hard.

Snow as hit Britain....but we can't seem to cope with it like the rest of the World does, traffic grinds to a halt, Schools close (kids love that) and bussiness's are often shut....funny thing is i dont remember life coming to a standstill like this when i was a kid !!....dont remember having much time off school because of it,...but i do have fond memories of great snowball fights (sometimes even the teachers joined in) .. lots of fun on the way to & from school, and been allowed to stay in at play times IF we wanted to..most of us didn't..we went out by choice and enjoyed the snow..things have changed....but its still so pretty..these are a few pics of Staffordshire in the snow...I think lots of countries have much worse conditions than we do..or is that my imagination...how do you cope..Please let me know.
