Let it snow!
Six inches of snow and still snowing. Very Christmassy, but I shall never look on the Christmas robin with great affection again - one is defending our bird table against all comers - even tried to see off a magpie and gave another robin "what for" when it tried to get to the beef suet I have put out. The scene outside is very pretty from here in the kitchen but the lane is almost impassable. The farmer battled through it to fetch our daily papers, so at least we have up-to-date news to read. This is the first snow Tess has seen in her ten months of life - dashed round in it like a whirligig.
