not a lot to report...

1- No snow here at all whatsoever.

2- I seem to be turning the corner with the pesky plague I've had in the last four or five days. I spent the night waking up and trying to get back to sleep by all the usual means (BBC World Service at very very low volume, playing boring game of cards on the ipad, reading), without much success but, hey, I didn't spend the night coughing my lungs out. That is a great improvement on the last few days.

more snow

 It seems like no planes are going in or out of Gatwick... and there is likelihood of more disruption. London will probably not be as badly affected although the BBC was advising people in various parts of the country not to travel unless absolutely necessary, but if you're travelling abroad this week-end it looks like it would be a good idea to check with your airline before setting out...
