This is what we woke up to in sunny Sussex this morning, beautiful, innit? Sorry the pic is a bit blurry, but I wasn’t going to open the window because all the newspaper keeping the draft out would have fallen out! I expect that the reason I think it’s pretty rather than just annoying and inconvenient is that I don’t have to go out to work today (hurrah!) I can stay home, drinking tea and making cakes and watching the snow come down. Tomorrow is a different story (working), and on Thursday I will have to travel to London, so I expect my relaxed attitude to the snow will probably fade fairly quickly once it becomes a hindrance (in the UK an inch of snow is frequently enough to disrupt traffic and rail systems – because somehow even though we know it is coming, we always manage to be ‘surprised’ by its appearance). Still for now, warm mug of tea in hand, and the prospect of a day full of baking in a warm kitchen, with the Painter taking a day off too, and then curling up on the sofa watching films, I’m a happy girl.
