Tax Return, tick!

So yet again I have waited until almost the last minute to do my Tax Return, but it is done and only took me 3 hours this year. I keep meaning to write myself a guide to how to do my Tax Return, every year I forget where some if the allowances go and where you should claim each item, but every year I am just so pleased to have got it done that I just move on to the next thing on the list of things that I actually want to do. I really must think about doing my Return earlier next year, maybe in April or May!

But it is done and now I shall get on with enjoying my Christmas holiday and recovering from Flu, much better use of my time I think.

And so this is Christmas! Well Eve anyway.

Santa has arrived with us today, a little early, but he says he needs to get a head start as there is so much to do these days, and the snow has really not helped with the transport of toys and other gifts. Apparently any delays caused to air, rail and road travel are nothing to a stroppy reindeer that has cold feet! After all, we all know what happened to Rudolph's nose, and I am told that toes are just as susceptible to the cold and wind.

So how long will it last?

The snow fell in a couple of hours on Saturday morning, a good 6 inches in two hours - quite a thing to see.

I took this photo last night and it looks the same tonight, the temperature did not get above freezing all day so I start to wonder how long we will keep the snow for. I do not remember anything like this before. And the forecast, currently more is expected.

So how long will it last?
