'What winter?' I hear you say, 'It's spring!'
Hah. Not in the UK it isn't. We were promised 10C (50F) this weekend and I made plans to go away, and instead it's absolutely appendage-freezing, and the forecast is down to 2C for Saturday. 2C is 2C above 0C which is freezing in Cs.
So I was planning all kinds of things for the weekend including being very careful about what I eat and taking plenty of exercise and instead it's going to be the brr brr brr again.
I've been making bargains with the weather for weeks now (if it's warm I'll be good all week AND I'll go to the gym at the weekend AND I'll even groom the cats). It has only been warm once, so I haven't been good all week, not for several weeks.
Please please please can someone fix the weather? I'm really tired of itching everywhere because my skin has been dried out by the cold, and I wore my new frock at work today and it looks fab but my coat is so loose that the wind whistles right up it and freezes my doings. All these hikes I'm going on now, all I can think is 'this will look gorgeous in the spring'. It should BE spring, it officially starts today, and it's still SNOWING.
Is that the wind howling round the building, or is it the wailing of a desperate SparkPerson?
