I'm not sure why, but when I took this photo of a shrub in our garden, it turned out blue. This is exactly the colour the boys were feeling when told that our Christmas church celebration was cancelled, because the recent four-inch snowfall has wreaked havoc on car parks everywhere. Of course, if someone slips up in a car park and is hurt, British Health and Safety will be transgressed to the utmost. I'm probably inviting ire here but does anyone in the UK actually own a snow shovel, and if so, are they capable of using it? I suppose we could always find one first and set the example!
