Oxfam are holding a charity Cheese & Wine evening this Wednesday. The cheese is from Neal’s Yard Dairy, which is certainly the most amazing cheese shop I’ve ever been into. It’s in Covent Garden, full of free samples of delicious unusual cheeses, served up by enthusiastic people who know what they’re talking about.
Anyway, back to the story. The wines are from the local Everyday Wines,
which used to be “Nicholas” (a much better name for a wine shop!). The tickets are £10 and when I looked there were only seven left. So snap them up!

TOMATO SNOW MAN. YUM.
No expense spared for Blackheath snowmen (eyes made of 2p pieces)
People braving the heath
Looking down into the village, from the Conservatoire
Lovely snowy trees overlooking the railway
Blackheath shops all open for business in the snow
More snowy village shots
The church on the heath in the snow
Shops and church in the snow
Guess what? Even more snow on the heath
The church. It’s either very cold in there, or they have excellent roof insulation.
Snow. Heath. Etc.
It’s extremely snowy in Blackheath! But something is very wrong. All the trains appear to be running on time, and there is grit on several pavement corners. I have no idea why or how this has happened, but this oversight should not go unpunished.
Every year I dream of building a massive network of igloos across the heath, strung together with little ice tunnels. It never happens, but last year I managed to build an igloo (not in Blackeath). It’s not as hard as it looks, so long as you have lots of help, and some big plastic crates from a Pound Shop to compact the snow bricks. Try it and let me know where your Blackheath Igloo is!
