Autumn 2011 has been unusually warm and dry on our side of the globe; like a treat to make up for the summer we never had. But with Xmas fast approaching, I'm (sort of, brrrr!) looking forward to colder days. Big woolly sweaters, hot baths, steaming cups of tea, and snuggles on the couch under a warm blanket. There's just something irresistibly charming about winter.
On a completely different note, I thought you might want to know -- since this blog's readership is mainly (if not solely) female -- about this special report on 'Women & Work' in The Economist of this week. The country comparisons are particularly interesting. So what do you say, shall we all pack our bags and move to Scandinavia?
