Cold weather.

Yes, it,s approaching winter. We,ve had the sun, we,ve had the rain but what i don,t like is the cold especially when it,s accompanied by freezing winds from Siberia. God, we hate the winter. When your old, you can,t do anything in the winter apart from sitting beside the fire and that is if you have one. I remember the days when my parents always had a coal fire. Oh, to come home and toast a slice of bread one inch thick with the old toasting fork , spread it with a liberal coating of butter, ummm, it was heaven. These days it,s mostly central heating and you can,t toast a slice of bread with that. My mum used to knit me the old style balaclavas, now they kept your ears warm. I hated cold ears, it was worse than cold hands. The coldest i,ve ever been was in Czech Republic in 2004, we had decided to go to our friends for Xmas. During the week up to new year it was a constant 10 below but as we didn,t go anywhere it wasn,t so bad but on new years eve most of the village were congregated on the square ready for the firework display at midnight. I,m telling you that it was 25 below, even with my friends coat on which seemed to be a foot thick i was cold. To me it was unbearable, it absolutely cut right through you, we, that is the wife and i, endured it for 45 minutes, we could not take any more. At least the winters in Spain are not so bad, well their not where we live, our town has not had snow for 35 years. It snows in the mountains about 15 Kilometres inland and when it does it,s nice just to go and look . The temperatures in town rarely goes down to O.c thank god but we do get the winds which can make it feel colder. We live for the sun, so does our dog, anything below 14c he shivers like hell. Well, were all set up for the winter, we have had our Flu jabs, thick jackets are the norm, all i can say now is. Roll on Summer.

Cold weather.
