What a lovely surprise this morning....a fine layer of snow transforms everything. Even the most mundane looks gorgeous. My friend's black dog came in from the garden looking distinctly white! I am bedding down for the next few days as I've been struggling with bad ear pain for the last few days. Unfortunately I was due to fly over to Italy on Wednesday - but have decided not to risk further ear problems - plus I don't feel too hot either! I shall postpone visit (thanks to my great friend Janet) until later on. Keep warm and cozy everyone!
