I gave up....

It's not often I give up doing anything, but today I had to... I was going to walk to the post office to post a parcel, it's only a five minutes' walk, but I had to turn around before I was half way there because of the snow. Maja had brought her skis, so she was ok. But I'd put Susie in her push chair (in the hope that she would fall asleep)... bad move. The pavements weren't properly cleared of snow, and it was absolutely impossible to push the pushchair through it...
So we turned around and went home... I still needed to get Susie to sleep though, so I was pacing back and forth in front of our house for half an hour until she finally closed her eyes. The neighbours must have thought I'd gone mad.... Maja was happy though... playing in the snow and having a ball....
Just to show you how much it has snowed today... This was my veranda at 14.45...
...and here it is at 21.05... You can hardly see the banister...
There are some more photos from today in my facebook album if anyone is interested... (don't know if I have to add you as a friend for you to see the photos... if so, let me know and I'll be happy to add you.)

Det var ikke småtteri.Tungvindt med vogn i snøføyka.Du får trøste deg med at det er siste vinteren du trenger den.
Vi hadde -16,2 i går på hytta.God undskyldning for å slippe å gå på ski alene.Det ble strikking i stedet,og så har jeg endelig fått på nytt trekk på puffen.
Ha en fin kveld.
