You'll all be very relieved to hear that your timed writing test has been postponed for a week. I know part of a journalist's skills are to be intrepid in the hunt for stories and information, but you are hereby officially let off. Meanwhile in sunny Whitstable, there has been a terrible slaughter of snowmen: bodies of dying and half-melted humanoids with carrot noses and pebble eyes litter the garden like the aftermath of some terrible ice battle.

Timed writing test postponed until next week (Tuesday Feb 10)
