Wishing all visitors to my blog a most Happy Christmas! I was trudging home a few years ago - all of London's transport having ground to a halt due to the wrong kind of snow on the train lines/roads.

They were watching older ballet students dancing on the lawn outside and I guess they were wondering anxiously how their performance would measure up. From my book, "Being English"
