Not pleased with the sudden drop in temperature. The electric blanket has been pressed into service after long months of inaction. After a pretty mild winter last year I suspect this one's going to make up for lost time.
"I used to think it was a terrible thing that life was so unfair. Then I thought, 'what if life were fair, and all of the terrible things that happen to us came because we really deserved them?' Now I take great comfort in the general unfairness and hostility of the universe." — Marcus Cole, Babylon 5 — A Late Delivery from Avalon
It has been a bit nippy hasn't it - I've actually had the heating on this week (first time since the beginning of the year) and have dusted off my hot water bottle as well. Mind you - it isn't really cold enough to qualify as Time Wars weather yet. I would have thought we would only have reached that point when the temperature drops enough that metal is snapping...
The low winter sun is a prime cause of RTCs this time of year. People also don't see blue lights either. Nightmere. Do you remember there was a, I think, BBC drama last year or sumat called Low Winter Sun? I drove Mrs Shockprowl mad by saying, every time there was indeed a low winter sun, "Low Winter Sun" in the same deep voice that the anouncer chap says it in. Meh, made me chuckle...
I was the one who let you know, I was your sorry ever after, '84, '85. Give me new toys and I'll decide, but I'm really only after, '84, '85.
It's been odd weather here on Planet Falkirk. It has been snowing - but only for about ten minutes at a time, but it has been repeating that at about fifteen minute intervals most of the day. Sadly none of the snow has actually got around to lying as yet - its been melting pretty much as fast as it fell. It did look very pretty out of the living room window this afternoon and when I went into town this morning it didn't feel as cold as I had been expecting. In fact it felt a lot warmer than it had done at the weekend.
I hear from my family that the Northeast of England has been hit a lot harder than my area though - apparently it has even closed major roads down there. No danger of that here.
I only saw about 5 minutes of snow today. It has been blooming cold though. I was trying to watch some DVD's this evening but had to give up - it was just too chilly in the living room. I have had to retreat to the bedroom, which is on the warmer side of the flat.
Cold here. And it rained while Jonathan and I were having our weekly trip to ASDA at 8am this morning (it's complicated - Saturday's is the only day ASDA is open early that I can use my bus pass) - so we had to errect the space bubble round the push chair as we came out.
We seem to be in somewhat of a sheltered position here on Planet Falkirk. Although the cosmic storms rage over other parts of Scotland and the north of England it is relatively peaceful here. There is a little bit of wind but not much more than a stiff breeze, and there is no sign of any rain so far.
