You guys, it is cold here. Not continental cold, I’ll grant you, but quite cold enough. As I type it’s 2 degrees outside, with fat lazy snowflakes floating down before softly melting to naught on the wet floor (when it was warmer earlier we had rain, so it’s unlikely this snow will “stick”. Nothing to stick to, really). It feels colder though….I dashed out to the car earlier and literally had to do the frozen prance to get feeling back into my fingers and toes….
This may explain why I’m blogging sat in front of a heater. Wrapped in a blanket.
I used to be much better with the cold, but years of living in the south have softened me. My family are always amused by how cold I get now – I often come down to breakfast when I’m home for Christmas break wearing PJs, sweatpants, a sweater, scarf, and socks on my feet (and sometimes my hands too…). Thank heavens none of them are morning people, or there would be several incriminating photos floating around by now….
Winter’s still a magical time….just a tad inconvenient at times!
After the rush of last week, this is the more chilled week. I’ve been cleaning and scrapbooking and reading, cooking and exercising and calling people. I’ve almost finished the Christmas spreadsheet, and this morning I bought a tonne of gifts. Later in the week I’ll buy more gifts, and wrap and cards too. I like to get it sorted before the insanity of the six weeks at school leading up to the Christmas holidays. School itself will be crazy, but then there’s all the other stuff….singing things, comedy in Bristol, Bonfire Cottage, Karmageddon….. I will be a busy bee!
So join me in raising a mug of hot chocolate (with marshmallows, naturally…) to cosy nights in on cold nights out…. If I only had someone to cuddle with right now, this scene would be *perfect*!
Snuggle on, friends.
PS Christy, thank you for the mittens. I think they will come in handy this year!
