Current mood = pretty chuffed to be living in a beautiful part of the country. Even more beautiful under this blanket of snow. Which is incidentally proving very useful as well as pretty - our water's been cut off so we're using melted snow to fill the toilet cisterns!

On a smaller scale, there were stunning ice crystal formations everywhere:
