Thank god that cold snap is over! It got suddenly frosty, didn't it. I tried not to leave the house / office whenever possible, and at night I snuggled up under layers of White Company bedding and Avoca Irish lambswool blankets (they're an investment, but oh so worth it). So, while it is not quite as warm as before, I don't feel like my face is about to freeze off walking along the seafront, so at least that is something! It's February on Monday, which means it is basically the first day of Spring / my birthday, right?
