The temperature tonight is forecast to drop as low as -9 degrees, very cold for England although it probably counts as rather warm for some people who are reading this. It is a cliche I know, but sitting by warm open fire tonight with family after having eaten a good hearty meal is one of lifes simple pleasures and none the less for that. I still remember the ice on the inside of the windows when getting up for school in the morning, something I imagine not many people have to contend with here nowadays. Leaving for school to a landscape made magical by the stark black and white world of a heavy frost made the walk (no suv's then!) to school pleasurable...no mean feat for a school hater such as myself....that love of snow,frost and ice has never left me.
