In the bleak mid-February

Those in the UK will know how cold it's been over the last few days. It's been threatening to snow for the last couple of days and last night it really did.

OK, so it's not as bad as you might get in your part of the world, but York doesn't really get snow easily, even when the rest of Yorkshire seems to be snowed in. This is what it looked like outside this morning…

It's a nice reminder of our trip to the Grand Canyon over New Year. But oddly, part of me is really lethargic and unmotivated at the moment. I haven't been able to work properly for the last week. Maybe the last month or so of playing catch-up has worn me out.

I think I need a new project to get me enthused again. I've said before that I've got lots of ideas and lots of things I could be doing, but I think I'm stuck between plodding on with something technical and engaging my brain in doing something really creative – neither of which seem all that appealing right now. What the hell's wrong with me?!

Anyway, something more productive from me soon.
