My house in the Hampshires is already blanketed in snow as white as white can be – and my two black Pekinese look too cute in the snowscape. I’m always astonished at how, no matter how-ever deep the snow, cold the winter and frost, plants survive. And some plants, like the Pentstemon, don’t seem to mind how cold it gets, they just keep going…leafing and growing – even thought the ground is frozen solid.

I’ve got nobody coming to stay this year, so I’m not cooking. (Just as well as I’m on the Cambridge diet to lose some weight before I head to Palm Beach and Mustique in the new year.) It is a quiet one at home, appreciating the snow that has seemingly brought all of the UK to a standstill.

To everyone in the fascinating blogosphere, I wish you a magical Christmas and endless joy in 2011.

Love,

Nicky

    It seems like exactly what I would want to do. Be quiet and enjoy the “whiteness”

  6. Just reading your book Redeeming Features Nicky and having a good chuckle with my two surnames being mentioned. Chase and Churchill (my maiden name), too bad they aren’t mentioned in the juicy parts which I think are ahead of me yet. Enjoying the read. XO
