Winter in The Hague

On my way to the cinema yesterday, coming upon a scene of people enjoying their Saturday out on the ice, I stopped to take a few pictures.

The film we went to see was The Iron Lady, and it was remarkable how creditable an impression of Baroness Thatcher Meryl Streep gave, though the story told in the film was pure conjecture. It hadn't read about the film and it was Mum who wanted to see it, and I was somewhat surprised at how much I enjoyed it, and especially Jim Broadbent's humourful role as Denis. I was also quite pleased to see Anthony Head play Geoffrey Howe, though he is of course far too handsome.

That looks like a really good way to spend an afternoon.

I am still boggling at the idea of ASH as Geoffrey Howe - I may have to go to see the film just to witness that!

Or wait until the DVD comes out...

Is that a normal winter, or is it a bit extreme this year?

The last two winters, of 2010 and 2011, were extreme. So far, the present one hasn't been too bad...December and January have, in fact, been very mild. We've just come through a cold spell, but it's started to thaw again, so...with a bit of luck, King Winter won't be around anymore when you visit.
