Opening the curtains in the living room, seeing a snow covered world outside and getting just a hint of the excitement I used to feel as a child, Oooooh pretty snow. Right before thinking, brrr, not going out in that.
Deciding that we were "snowed in" and not going out shopping.
Mum saving be a big blob of marzipan from her Christmas cake.
Dad telling us that he'd played "better" at snooker. (He is taken out by a volunteer once a week and they usually go to a snooker club for a game and a beer. My Dad used to be captain of his local team many years ago and had a cupboard full of trophies. He thought he'd forgotten how to play).
Standing in the garden watching the birds eating the seed I had just put out.
