Anyway, shopping on Thursday was a bit of a hoot - impending Easter holiday with most shops actually closing for a whole day on Sunday was clearly too much for some people. I got run over 3 times and also had to sidestep "Nasty Nick" from Eastenders as he pushed his way though the heaving masses.
On Friday no one wanted to go anywhere so I started work on some new scenery for my toy soldiers.
On Saturday we went to visit my mom and I woke up her cat, Bacon, for a photo shoot.
This picture was taken at the height of the storm - look at all that snow! I bet you are thanking your lucky stars that this lot did not come down where YOU are! Luckily us Brits are tough and can take anything that the weather can throw at us. No need to panic on our behalf!
I also cooked Pork in Coke. It was wonderful, the best piece of pork I have ever done, maga tasty and juicy, although I am not sure where the Coke went to, it seemed to vanish into the juices from the pork. We had this with roast potatoes, yorkshire pudding and sweet and sour cabbage and carrots. Yum!
Of course, we all ate far too much chocolate over the weekend and I was a bit worried that I would run out of steam today, but I should not have feared! On my desk was a parcel from The Princess of the Universe which contained some amazing Canadian Maple Caramels. Mmmmmm! Thanks Princess!
