The Gloomiest Day

Today was meant to be the gloomiest day of the year. I did get stuck on the tube for half an hour this morning, and the rain fell and fell. But tonight I went for dinner with Mum and Dad to Ottolenghi (delicious, as ever) and afterwards Mum presented me with some snowdrops that she had brought down from Norfolk, carefully swaddled in damp kitchen roll. Gloom? What gloom?

Hope you have all found something to cheer you today, even if just a little bit.


  1. Gloom, shmloom!

    Love those snowdrops.

  2. very pretty, Becky. I so love snowdrops. Also, I chafe at the notion that we should all decide it's the most depressing day of the year because of an ad campaign.:)

    Really lovely pictures, above.


  3. Yes it was a bit gloomy but the sun valiantly made an appearance. I have a
    prize for you on my blog. Those are lovely snowdrops, hmm thoughts of spring...

  4. What a fabulous Mum for bringing such gorgeous gifts! We all need something to brighten the gloom at the moment, although the sun is shining here today so I hope it is with you too.

  5. Oh I'm so glad you made it to the Museum of Everything and enjoyed it! Looked up Ottolenghi and it looks amazing!

  6. What a nice mum you have. Snowdrops *in bloom* already - how wonderful. It will be weeks before ours flower, so thank you for letting us share yours!

  7. Beautiful snowdrops. As you know I try to find the positive where I can, especially on Mondays!
