Not one glimmer of sunlight
on this the shortest, darkest day of the year.
Here's some sun I saw earlier.
I think I may have made my last trip to Sainsbury's,
the one where I use up all my Nectar points.
I baked a ham.
O. made up a jar of Jamie Oliver's hot chocolate mix,
I will make waffles - a first,
and we will welcome a university friend from Chicago.
I can get her verdict on my peppermint bark.
