Yesterday I got woken up in the best possible way. I could hear children laughing in the street and when I peeked through the bedroom curtain I saw some kids enjoying a snowball fight in a snow-covered and deserted road. There hasn't been this much snow here since 1991 and as usual the city shut down. There were no buses at all, the tube had only one line running and most schools were shut. What do to do? Go to Hampstead Heath in your best winter gear and release that inner child. I've never seen the Heath that busy and as this is not a country with snowy winters people improvised with what they could find to use as toboggans; For Sale house signs, cushions wrapped in bin bags, planks of wood and my favourite, the wax cloth. I love how a bit (or in this case a lot) of snow gives so much joy to so many and that everywhere you look, people of all ages have huge grins on their faces. The only question is how long will it last?
