WINTER WONDERLAND INDEED – the Australians must be green with envy at our mini cold snap; after all, which is preferable: sweltering or shivering? Mossley has an alpine touch to it this weekend, though the biting wind has pedestrians quickening their pace. Shoppers on Mossley’s Sunset Boulevard (Arundel Street!) do not stop to chat; a dusting of snow has made the landscape look really picturesque. Could be something extra in Sunday’s tea!
