I am thankful for perfect winter days. Cousin Amelia has been feeling under the weather for the past few days, and I visited to keep her company while the rest of the clan was away at school and work. We lunched in the bright conservatory and took Zita for a walk and played videogames (she the soldier, I the mage) and made funny shapes out of our saffron buns before we ate them; and when the sun had set, we dressed in heavy coats and tasselled hats and gloves and ended all with a snowball fight in fresh snow.

It is the best way to cure a cold.
