Went to Sweden for some inspiration. A few days away in a magical winter wonderland... some ice fishing, snowball fighting and mould wine drinking by the fire place...  Right! First of all, the lakes don't freeze over until January. November is mild and rainy... rainier than England in fact! And no one has fireplaces over there! So we cought crayfish in the rain and grilled hot dogs over open fire instead. Kind of cozy... in a cold damp way.
