Nearly Bed Time

It's been snowing across the UK. In most places it settled; it didn't here. I've got the beginnings of some sort of winter poorliness and am wearing a blanket with sleeves over my clothes- which (combined with the smoking cap I use to keep my head warm) makes me look like a beardless Dumbledore.

Keith Chegwin died. Only Brits are likely to know who he was. He played Fleance in Polanski's Macbeth and went on to become a hyperactive children's TV presenter. He was very difficult to dislike. In later years he upset Mrs Grundy by compering a game show for nudists in which he was naked too and guest-starred in Ricky Gervais's Extras as a monstrous version of himself. He'd been ill for a while. He was 60.

My mother is watching Nigella Lawson prepare Christmas food.
