Snow at night

We had some snow recently and I took this picture in the middle of the night. I love snowy scenes, always reminds me of the start of "The Lion the Witch and the Wardrobe" - one of the best bits of scene setting ever for a children's book. You really do feel that magical things can happen when the world is transformed by snow - even boring old South Hampstead! As far as my book proposal goes, I was taken ill about 10 days ago, very alarming, and the doc says I ought to slow down for a bit even though I feel better now. Easier said than done but I am quite glad to feel there is a bit more time to think about what I am going to be writing.
