My mobile has decided that it can't send texts through the snow, so for now there'll be no photo updates or advent calendar (which I'm sure you were all enjoying immensely). Hopefully normal service will be resumed shortly.
I'll post some photos to Flickr tonight if I have time, and transfer them over.

On Nigel's recommendation I bought a Frank and Bing Christmas album from the pound shop. It's the perfect Christmas collection - a few carols, a few catchy numbers, the obligatory rendition of White Christmas and no less than three versions of Jingle Bells. My favourite track is Bing and Ella Fitzgerald's version of Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer which sees the eponymous hero sporting a green fedora and smoking cigars. A swinging Christmas indeed.

He was very tasty though! Meringue base and chantilly top, filled with sponge and raspberry sauce. I've got the day off so I treated myself to a cake and a cup of earl grey at Maison Blanc after the gym, undoing all the good work but oh well! It was such a treat to sit still for a few hours and people-watch; I was sat next to a big group of French mothers and babies who sounded like they were gossiping for, well, France but my French was too rusty to follow. Curses.
