Honestly, I'm worse than a child waiting for Santa when they forecast snow!
I carry on with everything as usual. I'm enjoying the preparations. Last presents and cards to go first class. Keep the fire going, do some ironing, plan the food, light a candle, pin up some cards, but all the time I'm glancing out of the window. There is some snow on the mountains all around. Not a lot. We have sleet, we have wind, we had one flash of lightning and one clap of thunder.
But no snow.
It's enough to drive a woman to open a parcel and read one of her Christmas books....
