I'm dreaming...

I woke up this morning to Christmassy scenery of white and frost, and to the news on the radio that some villages in Donegal were still snow-bound, or at least their schools were closed. So I dreamed of a house in Donegal, snow-bound if possible, a turf fire (with the possibility of turning on the central heating) and a pile of good books. My vision included a very comfortable armchair, a sleeping cat (well, I have that anyway, sitting in the only vaguely comfortable armchair in the house), and no sign of a pile of ironing or of a kitchen to be cleaned. At that stage, my vision became a bit too real and I drove to college, still vaguely dreamy.
