You got the text. School & college is closed and your boss was sound and told you not to come in today. Life is good. It's officially a snow day. It doesn't show sign of stopping and you're happy to stay in your jammies all day long. 

Here's some fun things to do while you're at home today. 

1. Cook something 

With the serious shortage of bread in Ireland, perhaps you need to put on Pat the Bakers' apron and bake some yourself. If you're feeling adventurous you can try out recipes such as beef stew, veg soup and a vegan pot pie here

5. Read a book

You know that book your work friend recommended to you months ago you said you'd read? Dust it off and give it a whirl.

6. Plan that holiday

The snow is pretty to look at now, but once it turns slushy it'll be gross. Get on to your friends and get planning that summer break you've been putting off. Chances are, you're all in front of your laptops anyway either working from home or chillin'.

7. Treat yourself

Do a face/hair mask. Paint your nails. Have a long bath. Whatever makes you feel good.
