I have decided this morning that as this winter is lasting so long, we might as well move further north.
I have my eye on a little 2 bedroom igloo with a bath over the shower I saw advertised just a few degrees south of the north pole.
We are also planning to open a small ice hotel with a theatre bar, with an eye to providing entertainment to show the sailors of the Russian subs, that seem to pop up now and then, a good time.
PS Many a true word spoken in jest! Subsequent to writing this series of posts last week, well lo and behold the news today (29 March 2013) reports that the UK is going to be colder than the Arctic over the weekend!
