And lo, snow did fall across London Town, and the workers did leave the office lest their trains should get stuck in the dusting!
The hysteria with which snow is greeted in the UK surprises me. In an office of 150 people we were down to five, the poor miserable five who could reasonably be expected to walk home and therefore had no justifiable reason to leave early. I was feeling somewhat disgruntled by this, jealous even. I silently hoped these people would get stuck on trains overnight and glowered at them as they wrapped their scarves around their necks while heading to the lifts.
That was until I heard one of them say, "Oh, perfect weather to build a snowman with the kids. Can't wait to see their faces." I had a word with myself then, and remembered my new mantra:
Bring Back the Joy!
