Standstill

Mmm. Just roasted and ate a load of chestnuts.
Outside, big fat snowflakes have settled into a crunchy white reality blanket.
My friend Kris is still here - she was meant to travel home to Germany on the Eurostar this morning. First we were worried, now we are just going to bake things and wait for everyone else to return to the house.
My flatmate is stuck in Madrid. It seems flights stopped going out. Our Christmas visitor from Amsterdam is thankfully only stuck in Victoria Station. Trains cancelled, buses... who knows. I'm waiting by the phone.

Am imagining Daleks sliding past the window, rotating gently, with caps of snow and their eye-stalks iced over.

It's very quiet outside.
