Early Monday morning and my Wivenhoe working week was underway with some snow – brilliant!
But wait – what’s this? Only working back in London for today.
I had the foresight to sacrifice the morning shave (overrated,) meaning that I gained a precious few extra minutes in the vital morning routine for a quick wander along the Quay. My 5am morning shadow stuck out amongst the white, crispness of the early morning snow.
It was truly peaceful down at the front for such an early hour. Is it ever any different? I wouldn’t technically call this a snow covering, but the dress rehearsal was certainly welcomed, as I scramble around for some Wivenhoe images for my Christmas cards for this year.
More of the same is to come, according to Mr Weatherman. Bring it on, I say.
Thursday in particular would indeed be very apt timing. Another working day in London – it would be such a shame if the line into Liverpool Street was closed.
Plus the switching on of the Wivenhoe Christmas lights at 6pm on Thursday evening would simply be magical with more of the white stuff under foot.
