It’s firmly winter weather here now. I’m all tucked up in my winter coat with my winter jumpers and winter boots on. Note the use of the word winter. I discovered yet another bizarre Anglo/Hiberno difference during the week: whereas we sensibly believe that winter begins on November 1st, over here winter doesn’t start until 21st December. I think I’m far more logical in sticking with November 1st but as the only non-English person in an office of 17, I’m completely overruled.
Still, a press is still a press. And a hotpress makes far more sense than an airing cupboard. That I’m sticking on!
