Short story is done and shipped off (oh, the woes of not being allowed to send it by e-mail!)

Still haven't completed the trauma of Christmas shopping for everyone (more money!) and the car has to go in for a service, which means that for at least six months into the new year there will have to be some serious retrenchment (but no decamping to Bath unfortunately, as one will still have to work.
We have frosty weather, but no snow. However, I am going even further into the frozen north tomorrow so it may be a different story there.
