Just before Christmas my friends Ian and Anna very kindly invited a few of us over for dinner. We had such a lovely time celebrating Christmas from two angles – one Finnish (Anna) and the other English (Ian).

I am aware for many of you following my blog this will seem like a meer sprinkling of snowy dust! But in London, for snow to even settle a little causes utter chaos!!
