Snow joke

I have been snow bound and stayed at home today. Its amazing how quickly the public transport infrastructure fell apart at the first sign of snow.

They seem to cope fine in Norway but here its a different tale. So I tried to do some work from home but not really sure how successful I was with Toddler Wild Thing and Thing 2 clutching at my ankles. To top it off there were some amazing Sample Sales happening in town today which I missed :-(

But hopefully tomorrow the trains will run again ......oh s*** weather forecast predicts more snow on its way.
Oh well if anyone out there is able to head into London the following sales are on - information courtesy of Daily Candy.
