I have posts in my head, but am too jet-lagged to post them. I will eventually. I didn’t take all those pictures on my holiday for nothing.

Term starts in a week. How is it nearly the end of January already? My diary is filling up with scribbled-in meetings and events. Meanwhile a snow storm has hit the UK and I am bunkered down at home, having walked through the gale, and wanting to go back into hibernation mode. When and why did humans choose to inhabit such cold, inhospitable places?
