It is said that some countries have climate whereas in Britain we have weather! This is a reference to the changeability of our weather in contrast with some countries where it can be predicted with a much higher degree of accuracy because at a particular time of year, the type of weather can be pretty much guaranteed.  In contrast, here, even if I look outside and listen t the weather forecast, I often still don’t know if I will need an extra towel to dry myself off after cycling in to Central Cambridge to give a massage!


Today, I do know that it is cold enough that the wood stove will be needed for an hour before giving a massage at home to warm the room up to a comfortable temperature for my client. In practice today that means just keeping it ticking over till the last half hour as it is still burning from last night courtesy of a fresh delivery of hardwood logs, the supply of wood cut up by myself having run out.
