Seen while out and about...

A guy walking past me in jeans and a short sleeved shirt. The forecast today was for a maximum of 8 degrees celsius. I was wearing jeans, a t-shirt, jumper, jacket, gloves and a scarf.

I know I'm maybe not entirely acclimatised to winter temperatures here, but ......seriously!?!? what was he thinking?!?

Dear British Weather

I know it is coming up to winter. I know it has to be cold. I know I can't have sunshine and hot weather all the time (as much as I would love to).

But, does it have to be quite so cold already??? Its not even December yet.......and I don't think I would like another winter as cold as the last one....

On public transport

I usually don't mind it, really I don't (and it's not like I have a choice, seeing as I don't have a car over here).

However, 7 line closures on the Tube today, plus severe delays on another due to a fire alert, plus a couple of stations that I tried to use being 'exit only' or closed......added up to a journey that would normally take me 10 minutes taking close to an hour....

*sigh* I miss my car today
