Just the briefest of footnotes on the snow postings. Have a look at these snowpeople, shot with my swanky new iPhone camera. Well, the iPhone is swanky but the camera, frankly, is a pile of pants. (The rest of the iPhone really is phenomenally wonderful.)
First, meet Lugs! Something of the cowboy about him. Note the ears, legs, necktie and belt.
Now say 'Hi!' to Mr Carrotconk. He has his own igloo (below) on our neighbouring village green. Eat your heart out, London! This is where the real snowguys hang.
