We’re currently having our heaviest snowfall for 18 years. So heavy in fact that the whole country shut down for two days last week. No one could travel anywhere as there were no trains or buses, and it was too dangerous to driveÂ — so no-one went to work. The supermarkets were closed. The shopping centre’s were closed. Schools closed. The list goes on.
Thankfully the pubs were open so you could at least get a pint.
The old folks are complaining about how this country is bad at coping with snow. We’ve not had snow actually settle properly in London for 18 years! How can anyone prepare for that?
Plus I’m not being funny but we got two days off work WITH FULL PAY. You hear no complaints from me.
However it’s starting to melt and go icy, so the roads are filthy, my car’s filthy and I’m slipping and sliding all over the place. And I’m STILL having toÂ wear flat boots….Â Â I haven’t worn high heels in a week.
I’m getting withdrawal symptons.

To get your view from across the pond, Miss London Party will be your guide. Every week, sheâ€™ll be casting her eye over the big stories happening with the Brits. From fashion to entertainment to current affairs to politics, sheâ€™s got you covered. A Londoner born and bred, sheâ€™s worked as a journalist for two of the UKâ€™s biggest broadcasters, and is currently presenting daily TV news â€” so sheâ€™ll be giving you an inside view on events. In her free time, she likes sitting in the pub on a Sunday afternoon, going through the newspapers, drinking a glass (actually a bottle) of wine, and tucking into a good olâ€™ English roast. Cliched, but true! She plays netball, swims and is ever so slightly addicted to trashy US shows on her cable TV.
