I was hoping to discover another series of Borgen behind the door of the calendar today, but alas not. All I found were grey skies, rain, a pile of cards to write and a pressing desire to stay indoors. But what's this? Lurking in the background, some winter fuel, gleaned from the shore of the Thames at Purfleet. And Smiley's People on BBC i-player.
It's not even cold outside to be honest, but we can pretend it is, just to get in the spirit of winter and all that.
