There are so many indications that winters here in England are nowhere near as cold as they used to be. Another one occurred to me today, perhaps because there was actually a bit of a frost, for maybe only the third or fourth time this winter. What occurred to me was this: I havenít had chapped lips and knuckles for years. I always used to get chapped lips and knuckles from very early in winter and it must be at least ten years since that happened. I have not had to reach for the Vaseline in that long. Oh, behave.
