Weather forecast isn't looking too good for tomorrow, so much for Spring!!

Luckily for me it is my day off tomorrow and an appointment I had has just been cancelled so at least if we do get the snow which is forecast, I won't have to go outside in it, well only to let my ducks and chickens out who aren't too keen on the snow either.

Have a lovely weekend and lets hope we don't get too much snow.
