Saturday Photo: Brrrr, But It's Not as Bad as on the Greek Islands
The first was a trio of tiger-striped cats sitting in a window, looking longingly at the outside. The second was a battered umbrella which had apparently given up the ghost during Thursday's rain, and then became frozen in a puddle upside down.
But because I didn't have my camera with me, you'll have to take my word for it. The windows here at home looked rather like the one in the photo, though.
But we are prepared for cold weather, we have central heating and scarves and heavy coats and boots. Winter is an inconvenience not a disaster.
The case is quite different in refugee camps around the Mediterranean, with snow falling on the Greek Islands, in fact. One of our young friends is involved in a project to help pregnant women, new mothers and their families in the camps, and has put out a call for financial help. Check it out here: CRIBS.
