this is a bon hiver
*This is one of the snowiest winters Cambridge has seen for a long time. There are mountains of snow everywhere, and walking to class has become a treacherous sport.
*Winter is here to stay for a good while. snowstorms have become weekly occurrences...
*Some days we are lucky enough to have a little bit of golden sunshine, but even then the snow banks do not melt.
*On dreary, grey days, when going outside feels like a death sentence, it is nice to just stay in my pajamas all day and sit on my bed drinking hot tea.
*Christmas spice tea from Fortnum & Mason, Italian lemon honey (miele di limone), and a hand-painted saucer from South Africa.
