We had snow! Briefly. But I got to enjoy the hyperspace effect as I drove through the blizzard. Unfortunately, I also got to enjoy the failing-brakes effect as I tried to turn off the road and park my car. But now I know how much fun a 180-degree turn in a car can be.

I was a tiny bit proactive at the beginning of the year, sending a letter and CV to the local private school so that they could add me to their list of potential piano teachers. Yesterday they offered me some morning work. So next year I'll earn £5,000 more than this year. But I'll lose three mornings of my week. But I don't do anything with my mornings at the moment anyway -- just slobbing around the house in my dressing-gown while feeling guilty over not writing anything. And the school is within easy walking distance of my house. But I'll have to be up and dressed before 9.00am. Still -- £5,000. I'd be stupid to turn it down. For the first time ever my annual salary will be over the local average.

Matt and I have just celebrated our 8th anniversary. There is no down to this. It's been 8 years of unbelievable upness. The happiest 8 years of my life.

To counter the total upness of me and Matt, though, there's always the allotment to bring me down again. It's such a mess. And the weekends have been so wet recently that we haven't been able to do anything about it. Bah.

Also, it's Shrove Tuesday, which is my favourite religious festival of the year -- even including Christmas. They haven't worked out how to commercialise Pancake Day yet, thank goodness. We have milk, eggs, flour, butter, lemons and sugar. Let the joy commence!
