I didn't think I slept well last night but according to Huffle, I slept better than he did - whoops. Smallest is still being sensitive and left for school with a fleeting kiss but no look back, wave or an 'I love you'. Oh dear. They both contemplated wearing trainers for school until the horribly forecast storm came our way. Snow that looked like it was just tiny flakes, gathered with force and completely covered the drive and roads in minutes. Trainers discarded, snow pants gathered, and on the bus for a day of learning. Small's teacher was off with the flu (a lot of it going around considering that everyone you talk to has had the flu jab!). Today was Pink Shirt Day and dealt with the issue of bullying. How ironic then for Smallest's bully to get an award today for Respect. Well that's interesting, as he might not be bullying Smallest anymore, due to the fact that they have different play areas now, but that he is still a bully in the playground to others. I am disgusted!
I went off to aerobics carefully in the car, with the snow collecting at an alarming rate, only to realise I had forgotten my inserts for my trainers and had to drive back home where Huffle greeted me on the drive with them to save me being late. Aerobics is about 1.5km away so it doesn't take me long but my tracks on their drive had been covered over by the time I got back. It carried on snowing for the next couple of hours at least and I decided to stay in while the weather sorted itself out. The forecast at that point said we could get freezing rain or heavy rainfall. Huffle and I had lunch and watched a bit of Gotham (loving this series) and then I went out in the very heavy rain to take back the tiles and get some more. My shoulder was hurting again so Huffle loaded them into the car but I had to get them out the other end and they were really heavy. I grabbed a frozen trolley and loaded the tiles - everything got absolutely wet through. At the Returns, I got my money back for the tiles and left them with a thawing out trolley that left a huge puddle on their floor. The tiles I wanted were on a display board but they weren't the correct colour in the box. One of the assistants tried to help me and we wandered the whole shop looking for something that would be right. We found nothing. I was very wet and grumpy at this point and called Huffle who told me to come home. I knew I had to get them before Monday as MrBasement was coming (plus he is bringing Jim to help which hasn't pleased Huffle because that will mean we have to pay more). I drove about 30 minutes away in the ridiculously heavy rain with huge puddles meaning lots of aqua planing, stupid driving and wipers going ten to the dozen. This made me more grumpy but I found the tile place I was looking for and looked at every single tile they had while the owner was on the phone. When he attempted to help me, he showed me everything I didn't ask for and said what I wanted didn't exist. I left feeling even more grumpy.
I should have been walking with ClownRose but she wanted to cancel because of the weather and I was probably too late and grumpy anyway, so I came home. Huffle and I spent some time looking online and we decided to just buy white subway tiles which he bought tonight whilst the boys were at basketball. If they are no good, we will have to take them back and start again. Grumpy face emoji!!!!!!
I made dinner, the boys came home and did homework. Small had maths and sat in his room with his loud music and Smallest wrote on a school blog about a book he was reading. After dinner Huffle took the boys to basketball, left them and went tile shopping.
I was supposed to be at home sewing but my icicle was too big for my square so I couldn't do anymore. I'm hoping they have given us the wrong measurements otherwise I've done a terrible job.
