Mellow Sunday, snow in London

Just saw on the news how the Olympic fire from Beijing was welcomed in London - snow and fire extinguishers!
No snow here - yet, but spring is a long time coming this year. Meanwhile, we cook big dinners, go for freezing walks in the country, sing Bavarian songs and listen to Nick Cave. Work/life balance tips into work at present, but the bank balance is also tipping into overdraught, so I am hoping to get the work over with quickly, before the sun comes..
