So you can imagine how delighted they were to see me proved totally and utterly wrong this year!
And once everyone had safely arrived at my parents' house (especially Mr Locket who was the last to arrive on Christmas Eve in the midst of further heavy snow)
we were able to relax and enjoy the lovely white stuff because..................
Snow + excited children + lovely big cousins
= LOTS OF FUN
And if you asked the Little Lockets what the best part of Christmas was it would definitely be the toboganning (with presents coming a very close second!)
And with my brand new, perfectly designed for me, even if I did have to chop the top 3 inches off to make them fit my fat legs, button wellies
even I was persuaded to go toboganning!
Totally mad fun - but I drew the line at going down THIS slope
