I was slightly too optimistic thinking I’d discovered a cure for the common cold (running + Nando’s hot peri-peri crisps); I’m now coughing, sneezing and generally being the person you wouldn’t want to be sitting opposite on a train. Bah, bah, bah, and some humbugs thrown in for good measure.
On the plus side though the snow has mostly cleared (although to be replaced today with mysterious thick fog which makes me think of the scene in Snow White where she runs through the forest to escape – don’t think there’s really any fog in the scene, but it’s the same sense of foreboding and oppression. I didn’t go out, except to my garage!)
Also we’ve got our Christmas tree up and beautifully (if randomly) decorated by the children. It looks kind of like this:
(That would be an angel at the top of the tree, as requested by my 3 year old daughter. My 5 year old son suggested a Transformer or a penguin. Love those kids!)
