Substitute rain for snow and Sherrey may well have been addressing me directly here! With the incredible wet run we’ve had in the UK, I have avoided getting out for a regular walk round the block for several weeks and apart from now feeling a bit lardy, my back is playing up and preventing me from sitting altogether – hence my silence and time to share another’s words of wisdom.

I am missing ‘thinking through my fingers’ as it’s nearly as good as conversation with a listening friend – but on the upside my ironing mountain is now a mere molehill !
