Recently, it’s been very, very cold. Maybe it’s just the Londoner weakling in me, but no amount of snugly knitwear and pretty scarves and lovely boots can quite compensate for the freezing chill when you wake up in the morning and have to get dressed, before the heating turns on. Even worse is the ever present darkness. A whole day can pass with barely a couple of hours of sunlight; even then it is not exactly lightness and brightness. All in all, I am completely and utterly fed up and want more than anything to experience a lovely day in the hot summer sun, a desire made even worse by the knowledge that it isn’t going to happen any time soon.
