Funny thing, weather.
Here in Australia it is autumn.
Fall for you Northern Hemisphere people.
This time last year it was also autumn.
How 'bout that?
This time last year I had been running the heater for six weeks already.
Not continuously, I turned it off when I went to bed, or out, but it was cold enough to need a little artificial heat.
I've dusted off the heater and turned it on briefly to make sure it still works and to burn off the dust that collected on the bars. .
But that's it. I don't need any artificial heat yet.
Though the days are still sunny, the air is cool, and some days I'm wearing fluffy socks instead of bare feet, now and again I'll put on a cardigan or sweatshirt over my t-shirt.
I'm even wearing the flanelette pyjamas to bed, but taking them off in the middle of the night because I've got too warm under my doona.
The dressing gown still hangs on its hook behind the bedroom door where I put it last October.
And I'm still eating ice cream, something I absolutely cannot do if the weather is cold.
How about you? Are you cold yet?
No, not you, you're in the Northern Hemisphere.......
....warming up again.
