Paul's snow photos

February 3, 2009

Paul has put up some photos of snow around his work so you can see the business park he works in and the golf course he sometimes walks through at lunch time.

Most snow in London for two decades!

Paul had a snow day today and worked from home as there was traffic chaos due to the 20cm of snow! It was the most snow in South-East England for 18 years. Very cool.

I watched it snowing for most of the day.

Paul opened the balcony door to run through the snow (bare foot)
…to gather snowballs…

2009 begins…

January 12, 2009

My first week back at work was a bit of a struggle, it was cold and dark for a lot of it. I only went to the gym once during the week (did I mention it was cold?). It has now warmed up to 9 degrees! Yay!

I had a very relaxing weekend of doing very little: watching it snow on Saturday, reading, brain training on Nintendo DS Lite (am addicted to sudoku and my arithmetic has improved incredibly), one trip to the gym and watching TV (I can’t wait until the next instalment of House of Elliot next Sunday). Paul and I talked about going to see Slumdog Millionaire – maybe we’ll do that in the next week.

Currently reading: Mrs Dalloway by Virginia Woolf. I have started this book two or three times before and could never get into it but am managing it better this time. Maybe knowing a lot of the London places is helping (I struggle with Virginia Woolf’s stream-of-consciousness prose but I’m determined to stick with it – I have started To the Lighthouse many times and never could get into that either.)

It's snowing in London

January 5, 2009

This morning I woke up to find snow on my balcony! Have I mentioned how bitterly cold it’s been lately?

After I got to work this morning I got to watch it snowing out of the window. It melted once it hit the ground and it didn’t last too long but it was cool.
